Not much ice here at Mile 308

I've seen pictures and read things about ice forming in the Upper Ohio, but here in the middle part of the river,  the only ice we see is close to shore in areas of little to no current. For example, these floating flat pieces of ice at Harris Riverfront Park in beautiful downtown Huntington.

Even the ice sculptures formed by wave action on solid objects in the water have not had time to form into unusual shapes as contrasted with more normal ones such as this.

We would probably get more ice here if we had colder weather of longer duration, but most people I know will pass on that.
