Lingering Ice Fog Then Clear Day

The day started with a heavy ice fog over the lakes and rivers. A small fire on a towboat in the lock chamber had brought out 8 fire trucks don’t know how many support vehicles, three rescue boats from around this county and a couple more. Sounded like from the fellow I talked to no injuries or that much damage. Did not know we had so many emergency agencies around. They seemed to have trouble in the fog locating where exactly to go for access. Good practice should the need arise that required a full response under not so ideal conditions.

It is not my thing to photograph that sort of thing. The fog finally lifted and the skies were clear and bright. The birds got active and had a good morning. Went to the VA clinic mid-day, they think hyperextension on the knee, ordered some medicine to reduce inner swelling. If that does not work then x-rays and go from there in a couple weeks. Feel like it will heal on its own with the meds help.

The sunshine and warm up seemed to bring out an abundance of birds vying for every fish that surfaced. The cold temperatures causing a lot more fish kill it looked like. Great Blue Heron that seemed sparse in numbers recently where everywhere. Hunker down when the weather is bad, come on out when the sun shines not a bad plan for the critters I spose’…

  1. I love taking photos in freezing fog. When it happens here everything gets covered in frost. I’m glad the fire was an easy one. I wouldn’t want the job of firefighter.
    I’ll bet those eagles don’t miss their catch too often!
    I’m glad you found some help for the knee. Hopefully the medicine will do something.
    That night heron is an odd looking bird.

      New Hampshire Gardener,
      When everything is covered in the frost it can be special. I would not want to be a firefighter either. The night heron juveniles are so different from the adults. Even the eye color will change from orange to red.

    Always enjoy re-visiting this site and catching up on what I’ve missed. I often feel that you have shown me rare wildlife moments that I might never observe no matter how much time I spent in the outdoors. Please be careful with the tender knee and allow it opportunity to mend.

      Gary J,
      Glad you stopped by. Good to hear from you. I am fortunate to be able to get out and discover. The knee is improving each day. Thank You.
