Re: -5° F to -10° F = -20°C to -23°C -- a sidenote for us in, say, Europe (N/T)

I have heard from a source of unknown reliability that an ice cube tray filled with water out of the tap will freeze faster left outside at that temp. in F or C than a tray put in the freezer.

Just something to keep in mind if the SB is on and the need arises. Not that I would know anything like that but that's what I heard.

Re: Norman

Take out a child's Bubble Blower (the one's where you dip the circular end in a soapy liquid then blow through the circle) and see what happens.

Re: What can -5° F to -10° F do?

Thanks for picturesque natural images.  Here in Toronto, while I have few shots of icicles, what the ice storm did was take down tree branches everywhere and create skateless rinks on pedestrian walks.  I had a couple of slips to my rump and one bounce off the back of my head from a half inch of snow camouflaging an ice sheet on what should have been urban civilization.  Here in Toronto, ordinary photography has become "do not try this at home".

Re: I2K4

Sorry to hear the hidden ice has not been kind to your backside and head. When I saw that the dock looked like an ice skating rink from the frozen spray of the river, I at first hesitated. But spreading the legs of my tripod slightly made it a very effective walking stick (the camera was hung around my neck). So I gave it a go and was rewarded with an unhindered view of the river looking downstream.

Thanks for looking and please stay safe in your icy weather.
