You can see the difference in the pond surface since Friday, even though the surface was completely frozen both days. I didn’t capture an earlier picture on the first, which showed the surface frozen in some spots and open water in others. It made an interesting pattern, so I’m hoping to see that effect again.
You may notice this is a slightly different angle than the first photo. There isn’t much physical distance between the two locations shown, but this view is facing almost due west through my windows and the other is southwesterly through the sliding glass doors.
