Icebergs in the Nooksack

A few weeks ago, Guyan said he wanted to see the Nooksack River with icebergs floating in it. I chalked it up to childhood innocence, and told him that the Nooksack doesn't get that cold.

It's not the first time I've been wrong.

A few days ago, our friends the McCains posted on their blog pictures of the icy Nooksack This morning, Sean called to tell me that there was snow--non-moving snow!--on the river. Of course, we had to get photos of that. If you're not familiar with the Nooksack, just look for the borders of vegetation--there's supposed to be WATER, not ice, between those borders!

And because this is a blog for family and friends that are far away, I had to include the kids in the picture. Contrary to the story that the photo tells, it was actually Guyan who didn't want to stop, look at the river, and take the picture. Funny, just a couple of weeks ago, he was excited at the thought of icebergs in the Nooksack.

That was my plan for this afternoon! We were going to stop for the same photo (before being diverted by an urgent call to go to the hospital.. but that's another story!). Maybe tomorrow?

Every time I drive by I think it is so cool. I did stop and get another picture. We couldn't have asked for a better Christmas morning with the snow this morning. Hope yours was great.
