Another Day on the River

I guess the Red River is still freezing up, even though it looked the other day as if it wasn’t.  The temperature is dipping a little below zero each night, and getting up to +4 or +5C during the day, but there was definitely more ice on the water when Chester and I took our walk yesterday morning.  The ice is still nowhere near thick enough to walk on though.

The Red River flows from the South to the North, but since it does have turns, it is going east to west where I walk – which is how I get such nice sunrise pictures sometimes.  When I take pictures showing both the east and the west, sometimes they look so completely different that it seems they must have been taken at another time or even another day.  There is a drastic difference in yesterday’s pictures – partly because they sky is cloudy to the east and mostly clear and blue to the west.

There had been no changes in my yard by the time I returned home last night and no calls from the water department, so today is business day 2 and the expected call back day so I can find out what they were doing in my yard on Saturday.  Maybe I should run a poll for people to let me know if I should be holding my breath waiting for a response.  What do you think?  Will I hear from them today – tomorrow – the next day – or never?  I could also add – will they come back and fix it up?

Time to take an Africam break now – have a great day.

  1. Sounds like your winter has arrived. Here in the U.K it is quite mild for the time of year. Just lots of rain so Wales is living up to it’s reputation of a wet place to live.

    1. Yes Mary – winter is here. Most of the snow has melted already, but the rivers are going to be covered in ice for the next few months, whether we like it or not.
