I know Maryland isn’t as cold as Minnesota or North Dakota, so perhaps I know nothing about “deep freeze” in the winter up north, but to this born-and-bred Florida boy, the creek freezing over still seems bizarre. Just the idea of having weather cold enough for long enough to make all outside water freeze is still a wonder to me.
For the last several days we’ve had single-digit overnight temperatures. Today, however, we had a heat wave. The thermometer soared to 37 F, with bright sunshine. Still, it wasn’t warm enough to thaw the creek.
