River froze over
#1
Yakima river next to my house froze over this week..but unthawing now...Some houses it was backing up into...Good thing my house is just high enough not to worry..river only made it too my house once in 100 years and only a foot in..One reason my house is the oldest house in my town..lol..Got up on the hill and snapped some pics...And i zoomed way out on my new cam and did not notice till i got home..Idiots out in the middle of the river {shakes head} If they only knew how many people we lose in that river when it freezes up..Some people will never learn.

That's some cool photosTongue
Never gets cold enough in Australia for a river to freeze would like to see it for real. Old mate and his horse in the last photo are braver than me for sure

Yup!! Mite look like a horse..Till you blow the pic up a bit..hehe...Some not so bright folks..We have lost alot of people in those rivers during winter,..I use to be so scared of our local rivers growing up, cause they was always dragging someone out of it dead..And that alone mite of saved my life as a kiddy... when i seen the river all iced up and thought about doing the same!! But in my mind..No no no.i dont wanna end up in a bad way.

Cool pictures and those people out walking on the frozen river must not be locals, although I live on the other side of Washington even I know those "frozen" rivers have taken many lives. Even if the person is lucky enough to get out of the water they can die of hypothermia in minutes.

Yup..I thought the same thing "Maybe they just out of towners"...it looks like they parked on the freeway just to run down there to the river..Which we all know is illegal too..lol

I did not know they was on the ice..could not see them..I was just zooming the cam out far as it could and see how good it was.....But was kinda shocked when i uploaded the pics on my computer..Whoa..some idiots out there on the river!!
