Ice

The splash of the briny bay along Bush Terminal’s shore…
Since these pictures were taken it’s gotten in the high 60s in temperature, then dropped again. AND, much of the access to the water has been fenced off for construction scheduled to last for months..

    Yesterday we had similar weather here in Northern Virginia… ice covered everything then melted quickly in the afternoon.

    Does the construction have anything to do with the ill conceived off-shore wind farm that is about to blight our shore? The eyesore will never end. Wind turbines require maintenance i perpetuity. That means trucks will be delivering materiel and vehicles of all sorts will be bringing technicians to maintain the turbines as well as the boats which take them to their jobs. Say goodbye to all the wildlife in the area. Who needs to see a piping plover on an actual nest when you can use the electricity generated by the whirling murder blades to look at a video of what the birds used to look like. But the ice is interesting. How warm does the planet have to get for that to no longer exist, either?

      A section of the park built over piers has been caved in for at least a year; that’s the main focus of the construction. why that closes off the jetty and other bay-side extension, I don’t know. Unlikely to have anything to do with anything in the Bight.
