The Difference A Day Makes
Yesterday about this time I put up a blog about how the river had filled up with ice, and some pictures. Here's one:
Well, today the ice has been pushed down river. I swear, 20-30 feet deep of ice, I was truly wondering how long it would take to melt enough to move on. I'd have never believed you if you'd said it would be gone by the next day...
That picture is from the same place. Last week the river was just a sheet of ice and it was so low. I was wondering how it ever fills up. You can't tell from the picture, but that is a deep river right now.
All the chunks of ice that you see still on the edges were thrown to the edges by the river. The way the ice breaks up it causes so much pressure that sometime it just pops a chunk of ice into the air, and some of them land on the sides of the river. This next picture show how big some of these chunks of ice get to be. There is a beer bottle on ground in front of this chunk of ice, and that just got thrown up to the shore in the last two days.
