Variable weather

Rain again today, and wind. Last time, the river was edged with scummy foam all the way along its banks, after the storm. Today's bout includes ice pellets and freezing rain. It "feels like" minus 8 this morning, although yesterday afternoon I was able to take a jacket-free walk along the riverside trail to Cummings Bridge, thinking that the weather had finally calmed down. Ducks were pairing off; I saw two pairs of hooded mergansers, the males displaying to the females.
