Pancakes, anyone?

Pancake ice occurs when the water on which it forms continues to move slightly before it has a chance to freeze into a solid layer. This ice is in Racine, Wisconsin's harbor.

The morning was cold and quiet. The only sound was the creaking and cracking noise of the large ice floes amid the barely perceptible movement of the water.

Getting some snow today. Maybe six or seven inches. Not a show-stopper here in Chicagoland. And I'm definitely glad I don't live in Oswego County, New York.

Excellent recent series from you, James. Great job on Ready, Aim, Click too! My only regret is that my office firewall prevents me from posting more comments (blogger.com domain is blocked) in the daytime, leaving me with the occasional evening log-in from home to post comments.

Great photo James. We're celebrating Pancake Day here in England on Tuesday! I've never seen ice shaped like that before!

I just wrote about Pancake Day in my blog and put in a link to this post so you might get some visitors coming across to have a look at it. I think it's really good.
