Yesterday morning when I left for school, the river was covered with ice. There were some pressure cracks and some pooling water spots from runoff but the river was covered with ice.
Yesterday afternoon when I came home, the river was covered with ice. There were more cracks and larger pools of water but the river was covered with ice.
An hour after I arrived at home, a channel opened up along the river bank.
Two hours after I was home, ice opened to the south and to the north of the island across from us.
I think when I get up in the morning, the ice will be gone.
Alas, when I got up this morning, there is still some ice on the river and it is snowing!
