Leather and ice

Frieze that is an homage to leather frozen along the Charles River

It'll take more than one day to melt all the ice that formed in our brief sub-zero blast. Along the Charles River in Millennium Park in West Roxbury, a one-time homage to leather from Mechanics Hall (bulldozed to make way for the Pru) remained encased in ice around 3:30 p.m. today.

The ice also snared some tree branches:

On the other side of the river, geese took advantage of their new icy resting area:

And somebody who really knows about cold weather - a Canadiens fan - left his or her mark, along Sawmill Brook:

Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


Is that a sloping wall of ice? I wonder how that formed?

As a fan, it pains me to say it, but that is likely the most productive thing from the Canadiens in the last few seasons. Sigh.

This should get excavated and reused somewhere. Shame it’s being left to deteriorate.
