Ice on The Ohio

January 2010 has been a frigid start to a new year.  This being the 9th day of the month and all those days have been below freezing with the morning's low as cold as 8 degrees for several mornings.  Today's high was a whopping 19 degrees.

With these cold temperatures ice chunks have formed on the Ohio River.  This picture was made today at about 1:45 P.M. right before the Cave-In-Rock Ferry announced it would have to close due to the ice.

These ice chunks were floating next to the Kentucky side of the landing, but they were also all along the Illinois side too.  I know the river had been frozen worse than this in the past, but this was the first time I had ever seen it.  I wanted to share the picture with others that might be interested.
