Corning's Chemung River Frozen Over

It’s Sunday. Clear blue skies. No wind, not even a breeze. That’s a good thing. And finally the temperature in Corning NY is back up over 20-degrees Fahrenheit. The high 20’s and for an hour or so, it was just over 30-degrees F.

It’s been so cold, I haven’t been walking. Just to the mailbox and to the apartment complex’s laundry room. I don’t think I’ve been anywhere on foot since Tuesday.

So, today I walked to Wegmans for some groceries and discovered that the river is covered with ice.

Tomorrow -- Monday -- more of the same. Temperatures in the low 30’s. But... all day long, there’s the distinct possibility of snow and ice accumulation.

We didn’t have much snow or cold weather last winter. This winter seems to be making up for the deficit.


Every 14 minutes a webcam ‘uploads an image... also offers time-lapse views of the construction process’ at the new Guthrie Corning Hospital site.

    1. Glad you liked them, CCU. Walking home this AM, I saw that the ice is starting to break up (weather warming today and tomorrow). Wanted to get pics for you but it started raining, so I moved faster and left the camera tucked in its case!
