My friends back in North Carolina are still sweltering in 90 degree weather.
This evening, the kids and I headed down to the park, and saw this.
Do you recognize that stuff on the water?
Yep, it's ice.
Lots of it.
We were spending some time enjoying the ice, when we suddenly heard the sounds of ice breaking a few yards away. We looked, and there was a beaver coming out of its dam, breaking through the ice.
It's a good thing we got our winter gear yesterday, and winterized our van earlier today. Now we are ready.
For more of this.
