Our thermometer indicated it was -26C (-15F) this morning when we got up. With those kind of temperatures the Fraser River will soon be entombed by ice for the winter. Already yesterday, the ice chunks were floating down stream, grinding and crunching as they rubbed up against the ice already formed on the edge of the river.
I alway find it sad to see the open water disappear this time of year. The movement and color it provides is so much more visually stimulating than the flat and static expanse of white that replaces it.
