These two men are sliding a bob-house (ice fishing shack) from a trailer onto a local lake. It slides right off and can easily be towed by an ATV or snowmobile out to a good fishing spot.

Ice Dam


An ice dam along a river is caused by large changes in temperature in winter. When the temperature gets very cold for several days, ice builds up on the sides of the river. When temperatures rise, rather than melting, the ice breaks off and flows downstream. At some point, it may clog the river as in these photos. Two of the images show an ice dam in a river in Goffstown and New Boston, NH. The last image shows the river as it normally looks. This ice dam is about a mile long. It causes water to back up and may cause flooding in some nearby homes. It will clear when the spring temperatures and rain melt the ice enough that it breaks up.

Don’t let the warm light and short sleeves fool you, it’s still winter here. These images were made last August at Boston Public Library’s summer concert series.

Neon


These neon signs appeared in a greenway in Boston last summer. They are from mostly defunct businesses and are the property of a collector who has loaned (?) them to the city. I think Stateline Potato Chips is still in business. I think I remember The Flying Yankee Restaurant. My father and uncle used to go for pizza at the European.
