Frozen waters

The cold spell that started in December continues unabated. Today I was at Fletcher's Boathouse at the C&O Canal near Georgetown, DC. The canal was frozen.

The building on the left is Abner Cloud House, said to be one of the oldest buildings along the C&O Canal.

To my surprise, even the nearby Potomac River was frozen. It's been that cold. But from my vintage point I couldn't tell if the ice cover extended all the way to the opposite bank.

I wonder how Pomatiopsis lapidaria are doing.

Wow, I'm not sure if I've ever seen the Potomac that frozen. Only very rarely, if ever.
