A Bureaucrat's Aside Re: Bitter, Bitter Cold

When I was young, my grandmother showed me old pictures of the Ohio River frozen over, with people walking and skating over it. Granted, at that time, before the locks were installed, the river flowed a bit shallower so it makes sense that it would freeze.

River flows deeper today; still freezes if it's really cold though.

Really, really cold.

Like this week.

Yaw - I fantasize of a year when PGH will be like Ottawa and open the rivers up as skating trails.

Hey ynz! Strap on those skates, we're headin' to Morgantown!
