Ice and Rodents in Salem

I honestly can't recall a time when the Willamette Valley has had sustained below freezing temperatures for a week or longer.

I don't want to complain because the sunshine was wonderful.

I love the ice build up on the sides of one of the many local creeks. This may be Shelton Ditch or Pringle Creek. I can't keep them straight.

This nutria seemed a little perplexed by all of this ice.

My kids enjoyed throwing rocks in an attempt to break the ice. I loved how the ice appears to adjust the flow and direction of the water somewhat.

On the other side.

I admit this is from two days earlier and explains why I needed that extra quilt. It never hit 40 on Friday.

Keep warm everyone.
