A crackling good time on the Charles River

Charles River encased in ice

Rick Macomber reports:

The crackle of breaking ice pierces the silence as this boat slowly pushes through the frozen Charles River last night

The photographer is on dry (well, icy) land and he was taking a long exposure and that white blur at the bottom of the Boston side is the boat.

I wonder why they were out on the boat on the river in such terrible weather for boating.

There's a new stormwater outfall under construction along Mem Drive and they've been running a barge out there to float construction equipment and breaking ice to do so. Not sure how long that will last (and this photo looks like it was taken pre-storm, too).

And here I was picturing a mini ice breaker dinner cruise on the Charles will a full Russian meal being served.
