Picture of the Day - Ice Plate

It has been unseasonably cold (consistently in the low 20's overnight) in my part of the world (Central Coast) for over a week and will continue to be so for some days to come. With each successive such overnight period shaded, smaller, outdoor bodies of water not only fail to fully thaw during the day but cumulatively develop ever thicker ice deposits on their surfaces. Today while out in the Adelaida area working for my friend Marybeth I found a tub filled with rainwater located in the shadow of a coast redwood tree. It contained a floating ice crust 3"-3-1/2" thick which I dumped out for better viewing. Photo by Kim Patrick Noyes (all rights reserved).
