Icy but not totally frozen
Today is the last day of autumn 2011. Officially winter begins tomorrow in the wee morning hours (12:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time).
This photo - taken last weekend - is of a shallow, slow moving creek at the side of a country road. Snow had fallen here when the water was higher, then as the creek water receded, chunks of icy snow were left suspended on the reeds.
To me, it looks more like spring than autumn. Since then the temperature has fallen significantly so I imagine it's all ice now.
