Ice on the Hudson River

     On Saturday, Pat and I took a walk on the Poughkeepsie Riverfront.  The Hudson River was covered with huge chunks of ice.
Looking south toward the Mid Hudson Bridge.
     The Hudson was called the "river that flows two ways" by the Native Americans who lived in this area.
     The Hudson River is a tidal estuary.  The tidal current in the river was so strong that the ice moved up river from south to north, although the river flows north to south.
          "Out of the south comes the storm,
          And out of the north the cold.
My dashing husband.      
From the breath of God ice is made,And the expanse of the waters is frozen."   ~Job 37:9-10
      This view is looking to the north at the Walkway Over the Hudson.  The seagulls didn't seem to be bothered by the ice.
     Just looking at all of that ice makes me feel cold.  What is the weather like where you live?  Do you have lots of ice and snow or are you enjoying palm trees and umbrella drinks?
