Holding Tight

The sun rises about 7:30 and has melted most of the snow and ice.  But there are still plenty of areas where, if the sun doesn’t reach them, the cold keeps them as icy and covered as if it were still deep winter.  These icicles had formed between the edge of grass on a small island and the ice that had, until a few days ago, covered the river.  The flooding would have scoured most of these away, so perhaps the frosty nights we’ve had in the last few days have been enough to cause them to grow again.
