The beaver lodge has a fresh, insulating layer of snow.

 

 

 

 

 

January 17th. A few days of bitter below zero mornings have clogged Judd Brook with ice.

 

 

 

 

 

Ice crystals above an algae-filled drainage ditch.

 

 

January 19th. Last night's heavy snow blankets the ice on a stream.
