They tell me in times gone past that the creeks would freeze solid and stay that way until April. They tell me the snow would fall and stay there for three or more months. This is a creek that children would cross, their legs wrapped in burlap, in midwinter to reach the old Bell Hill school. The beavers have stilled the flow of the water allowing it to freeze over.

We had a few days of being cold and frozen. But it will be in the sixties today and all will be fluid again.

Happy Sunday!

    I love half frozen creeks and rivers. A favorite photo of my dad was, axe in hand, chopping away at the ice while a bundled up crowd stood, blowing on their fingers, waiting to see if they would get their canoes into the water that day.

    My dad wasn't one to be denied a canoe trip, so they did.
