River in Winter

After three storms in the past week, Holyrood is covered under a thick blanket of snow. Yesterday I took a few photos around the town and am sharing two of a river not too far from my house. As you can see, there is lots of snow but the river isn't completely frozen. The temperatures haven't been really cold - hovering around 0°C (32°F) so there is little ice where water is moving. Ponds and lakes have frozen over but may have weak spots. There have already been fatalities because snow machines or ATVs have gone through the ice.
