looking for birds at Scherman Hoffman on Saturday, I also noticed some interesting ice formations. Even though Saturday itself was relatively warm, the preceding few days and nights had been cold enough to freeze both the ground and standing water. The Passaic River, which flows through the preserve, was partially iced over. In some places the ice was in flat sheets. In other places it formed globular clusters or looked almost like drapery (as in the image above).
