January thaw

A thick fog on Friday night made for a hazardous drive home, and heralded the arrival of warm weather. Saturday afternoon found us outside without jackets. Saturday evening as we walked down the driveway in the dark we could hear water flowing in the creek.

Where the creek enters the pond, the ice has nearly disappeared.

In the rest of the pond, the thin layer of ice that had formed on the surface has receded.

We’ll have to put off skating for another while yet.
