Also oddly enough, the ice on the water actually looks thicker than yesterday. Why this surprises me, I don't know. Yesterday it was roughly 17.0° F (-8.3° C), not including windchill factor. Today it was about 24.0° F (-4.4° C), with almost no windchill factor. It isn't like the temperature got anywhere above freezing, yet it felt like I could go outside without a coat and not freeze to death.
The metabolism of New England residents are a strange and wondrous thing. Best if we don't think about it, really.
And, yes, this photo was taken an hour earlier than yesterday's photo.
Below is January 2, 2009.
