It's Coming

Pretty soon the creek will be frozen solid.  This is where it begins,  little growths of frost and ice along the weeds and rocks, clinging to the edges, lurking in the shadowy spots.  Then it will slowly build up until there's no water left, only ice.  It's supposed to be 10 degrees tonight, winter is on its way.

That never happens here in SoCal. I've seen a little bit of ice in our creeks in the canyons I hike but never solid. Stay warm.

Hugs,

I get chilled just thinking about it Diane! It's in the 50's here, but they're talking snow flurries in a week. Nooooo!

It sounds like you've turned a corner down there, Diane. I hope you have lots of warm socks and good boots!

OOOoh BRRR...sounds like winter is definitely on it's way or there already. Are you used to that cold??
I find a lot of tranquility in the changes you describe. I don't know what sense that makes but I like it.
