The photograph below was taken last week! All that white stuff behind us is snow on top of ice, and flat pieces of ice are flowing down and into the lake.
This was an opportunity to be amused at the sight of a small group of gulls being totally motionless … but gracefully heading “down stream”. They were standing on an ice flow which was barely visible to us, and clearly moving with the current.
Perhaps in a few days, the ice will have gone? Perhaps in a few days the areas which have a risk of flooding will be able to relax? Perhaps in a few days we will be in “double digit” temperatures? Perhaps in a few days I will be wearing two layers of clothing instead of three? Perhaps in a few days, we will be experiencing the weather that we have been anticipating for quite some time now, but we are still in March … so perhaps I am just dreaming?
