We have had a strange streak of freezing cold, then warm weather the last couple of days. To those who want to argue that there is no global warming I have heard it explain that because of global warming the polar jet stream is less stable and oscillates more giving us more extreme cold days and warm day (http://www.weather.com/news/science/environment/arctic-blast-linked-global-warming-20140106).
Oh well, that argument out of the way (or started) about this picture. It was 36 degrees (+2 Celsius) in the morning when I went for a walk and by the afternoon it was 26 (-3.3 Celsius). Kind of amazing to see the temperature taking such a dip during the day. It was windy as well. I took this photo the following morning and the pattern in the ice shows how the ice did not freeze all at once; you can really see the patterns the wind made in the still partially liquid water. Really neat to see.
