Ice on the Potomac River for the new year!!!

Following several days of nighttime temperatures in the ‘teens and daytime temps below freezing, ice has formed along the Potomac River shoreline at our neighborhood as well as several miles up and down the river.

Here are some photos made around noon, Monday, January 1, 2018.

Looking from the picnic area across the breakwaters. The “waves” are not waves . . . that’s water frozen into the shape of waves. The dark area in the distance is open water; ice is the white/grey area.
There’s a beach under this ice somewhere!!! The “waves” are not water . . . that’s ice frozen into the form of waves.
Looking east toward the Chesapeake Bay, along the Potomac shore. As with the other photos, the “waves” breaking on the beach are not waves . . . that’s water frozen into the shape of waves
