Frozen Rivers around Thurman, NY

During the holidays I went north to Thurman, NY. Weather had been wonky in NYC and, apparently, it had done the same up there. The temperature had dropped and they got a lot of snow (as you tend to get in the mountains in December). But then the temperature raised so high that the snow all melted, causing the rivers to run high. Instead of staying warm long enough for the water levels to right themselves, it froze again, creating some interesting sights that greeted me when I got up there.

This is runoff from the dam, which is wide open.

If you go to past entries you will see that this is actually a field in front of me and not a frozen ice rink due to the Hudson overflowing its banks.
