I saw the Mississippi up close today. It’s still fluid, but moving slower on top. Ice creeps in from the edges.

But my big news for the day is that I finally (after 2 years of looking) picked up a digital camera
for myself. Many thanks to Vikki
and Fred
and Digital Photography Review
for helping me decide. It’ll be a while before I’m comfortable with all it can do, but it’s already a lot of fun.
