We’ve had a run of cold weather in St. Louis for a couple of weeks now, so ice floes are a common sight on the Mississippi River. I took advantage of the cold weather (how often do I get to say that!) to take some photos along the downtown St. Louis riverfront and of the frozen Chain of Rocks, when the air temperature was a balmy 7° (above zero, at least). A few of the photos, taken on January 6, 2018, are posted below.
