Ice Flows

Photo by SnaggleTooth 2007

The sea-ice is abundant here n so is my supply of decent pics of it to post for awhile.

...

I find ice-flow formations on the shoreline are always interesting because there are never two days that appear the same. The semi-durnal tide about every twelve hours breaks, picks up, n moves the ice chunks way up onto the beach, then leaves them in heaps on dry land when the water receeds.

...

We haven't gotten the snowfall on the Cape of the Western n Northern sections of the North-East US have. After a day of rain, we got glazed over n refrozen solid with a coat of ice in time for my ride home last early am. Conditions like this make me glad I'm not one of the delivery drivers.

Wow! Great pictures.... almost makes me think you went up to the North Pole for these.

Luckily we are still below the snow storm line to have not gotten anything yet.... but the air is still cold, and layers are in order if we want to go outside.

Stay warm... and I better get going on that bread baking!

Ellen, Thanks, these two were the winners of the last roll developing. The only thing missing is my totem polar bears...
This am was 14F here, then got warm in the 20's with strong wind-gusts! (7-layers)! mmmmm bread- Ah...

MB, I believe it was Dougie on the ice, circa 1984-ish, n think Nancy helped coax him back, cause no one would follow him! (Christine went out in the mud at way-low--tide, I went in to get her).
That was Brackish (28% saline) water- very scary ice! (A wide river with sea-tides). You're not hallucinating, your just very, very, pregnant!

Neo, yep- This is the same "fav" beach with the rock jettes from all those other posts... I hope not/Thanks! (It feels like it, too!)


Bks, Thanks! You're welcome anytime- glad you bumped in. TX is frozen?! Not this bad, tho- huh? I'm working my week-end, I'll make the best of it-

SkyBL2U, Thanks. If that huge of a wave blows in, ya better have a long-wet-suit, n a surf board! Hot water-bottles are keeping my home-life toasty... Toe is up or goes throb, throb, throb-
