The temperature got up into the low 50s today. Snow and ice have been rapidly melting for days, and the river is looking more like a spring thaw in March rather than a mid winter freeze.
From the shoreline, it looks like there is still a lot of ice out on the river.
The edge ice is breaking up, though...
...and there is a lot of water gushing down into the river after yesterday's torrential rain.
From higher up on the riverbank, it's more obvious just how much open water there is out there. So strange for early February!
