Courtesy of Paul, who blogs at Hawsepiper, we find this time-lapse video of barge traffic on a frozen Hudson River last month.
Watching that made me curious as to how they kept the ice broken up when it's so cold. This video of a Coast Guard cutter doing its thing on the Hudson River helps explain it.
I think I'll stick to the (hot) water that comes out of our shower head, thank you very much . . .
