Corning's Chemung River Frozen Over
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.
