We have had frozen river for about 2 weeks; It's probably 6"-10" thick now. It took longer than last year to freeze b/c it's been so warm. Rather than a weekend, it took about a week to freeze fully (near here. there are still open, very dangerous places).
This boat is driving through what seems to be all ice, but they broke it to make a path. That was kind of surreal.
They were traveling b/c of a funeral & people were traveling back & forth to visit.
