Tuesday morning it was 2.7 degrees; I do not know what the wind chill was. Not a good time to be out on the water.

I did spend about 45 minutes on Wednesday, (20º), only 4 tug boats passed by. Brooklyn had a real nice ice coat, while Catherine Turecamo and Ruth M Reinauer had some ice coating.

So… this week I’ve dug out some photos from 2007-08 while working in a warm place.
