Ice in the stream

Dave writes from Rogue River, Oregon: Winter’s here, in spades.  We finally moved our bed indoors after a 17° night on the porch.  It’s been around 10° for three nights now, with highs near 30°.  Only a couple of burst pipes so far!  We’ve been ferrying buckets of water out to the goats while I fix the pipes.

As you can see, the creek is freezing over, with ice all the way across in spots.  Here are a couple of shots of ice crystals at the edge of the creek.  Without any refrerence to judge scale, they look they might be photomicrographs.  The field is probably 2″ across.  Lots of frost but no snow yet.  Temps are due to rise 20° by Saturday, and we’ll get our first snow.
