Snapshots: Robins and iceboats
It has been a weird weather year at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
Not much snow through late February, but a fair number of days with at least occasional flurries. Not too cold (in fact, much warmer than average) but just cold enough with nighttime temperatures into the 20s and lower that there’s a foot or more of solid ice on the bay of Green Bay near campus (except, of course, in those areas such as the shipping channel or Frying Pan Shoals, a little further out, where the considerable current ensures plenty of open water).
Illustrating the contrast, perhaps, are these snapshots taken Feb. 24.
