The relative "warmth" of the river water casues a fog to riase in the chill of the early morning. In fact, I could barely make out the state capitol building just across the river.
The fog from the river coats the trees on the shorline with a shroud of frosty ice.
With all the freezing temperatures there was a good deal of ice on the Missouri River. The current was too strong for a solid surface of ice, but reportly the river was 50-75% percent covered in our area. This week the "Big Muddy" could be called the "Big Icy" with all the ice jostling and churning downriver.
