Jim Bishop admits he found it surreal to see a man standing on the Charles River today.
Kelley Hand braved the single-digit temps at Christoper Columbus Park this morning and got to watch seagulls in the sea smoke in Boston Harbor.
Jocelyn also scanned the sea smoke on the harbor.
Mary Ellen spotted this skater on the Charles River at Millennium Park in West Roxbury a couple days ago.
Authorities, of course, recommend not skating on the Charles.
Colleen O'Connor watched the waterfall at the Forest Hills T stop round 10 p.m.
Adam Castiglioni reports Fort Point Channel is freezing up.
Grizzled WBZ NewsRadio reporter Carl Stevens cracks an egg on pavement in single-digit temps to see what would happen.
Looks like not all the water fountains in Boston got turned off before the first freeze, based on reports filed with the city 311 system over the past couple of days. Read more.
Our own SwirlyGrrl spotted this window on one side of the Old State House this morning.
Meanwhile, Dr. Nasty Lady wonders: Read more.
To sum up: BRRRRR:
WINDS THIS STRONG WILL RESULT IN TREE DAMAGE INCLUDING SOME WEAKENED TREES BEING KNOCKED DOWN. SCATTERED POWER OUTAGES ARE POSSIBLE AND THIS IS PARTICULARLY CONCERNING GIVEN THE BITTERLY COLD WIND CHILLS EXPECTED OVERNIGHT. DRIVING WILL BE DIFFICULT IN OPEN AREAS AND ON BRIDGES.
Eric Fisher braces us for what could be record-setting "Chuck Norris level cold" Friday morning (not that Thursday will be that much better) - like maybe even sub-zero readings in some parts of southern New England (although he's looking at a few degrees above zero for Boston). Oh, but with wind chills down to -25 here.
The latest NWS hazardous-weather outlook for Suffolk County says we might get a couple inches overnight, but it should change to rain (at least on the coastal plain) by daybreak. And then the NWS subtly, in its uniquely subtle all-caps way, tries to get us ready for this:
AN ARCTIC COLD FRONT WILL CROSS THE REGION ON THURSDAY. THIS WILL RESULT IN THE POTENTIAL FOR BITTERLY COLD WIND CHILLS OF 15 TO 25 BELOW ZERO LATE THURSDAY NIGHT INTO FRIDAY MORNING. IN ADDITION...A PERIOD OF NORTHWEST WIND GUSTS OF 40 TO 50 MPH THURSDAY NIGHT INTO FRIDAY MORNING.
