On Wednesday folks were starting to get outside again! So I guess they had been cooped up long enough. And who could blame them the temperature did get above freezing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The sheet of ice on our pond had changed. Now instead of being clear, it had weird paths. It was almost like a humongous worm had made them. ๐Ÿ˜‰
At the edge of the pond it had started to melt. I was able to pull out a chunk. Wow, it was over an inch and half thick!

Christy found these cool ice rings! (I assume at her property). Additionally Christy was out on Monday when she took these shots! She didn’t let the cold stop her. ๐Ÿ™‚
A longer view. And today Christy reported that she and a friend had spotted a Caracara on 380 & 730! That’s exciting!

Next up Jeanne’s photos on Lake Amon G. Carter and her pond.

Love it!

A mix of ice and open water.

At first glance Jeanne thought the white ice blobs were white birds. Notice that ice blobs are above the water level.


Milky colored fingers!

It looks like a herd of elephants’ ice tracks! ๐Ÿ™‚

And these were the elephant’s feet. (Not my original thought…Judy suggested the elephant feet :-).

These ice bubbles are bizarre!

To make a little pun, these are cool. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Awesome photos ladies! Thank you for sharing with us!

  1. What great ice forms! Thanks everyone. Today Thursday we got up to 77. But the next front is supposed to get to us about midnight tonight.
    Glad to see the ice on the body’s of water. I don’t have any here to look at. But the frostweed lasted until yesterday when we got above freezing. Best frostweed show since we moved down here.

  2. I do love the ice pics. Never seen ice rings before. Cool. And Jeannes pics are outta sight. Hope the beaver program works.
