Trumansburg Creek Mood of the Day: Frothy
It would be easy, given the human structures of the village of Trumansburg, to drive right down Main Street and not realize that a creek is there. The Trumansburg Creek has been at the heart of our village’s development, but it has been obscured by development, and is often forgotten, even by residents.
I’m making a conscious decision to pay more attention to Trumansburg Creek. The Creek Mood of the Day, which I’ll be reporting on occasion, is a consequence of that decision.
The weather has finally turned to winter, and the air has been cold enough for several days now for ice to build up on Trumansburg Creek. Down at the falls in the middle of the village, the spray is coating branches and rocks to create interesting shapes.
Even on the falls themselves, water is freezing, so that there are interesting channels, dams, and deltas channelling the water in unusual ways. The resulting complex textures are whipping up the falling water into a bubbling froth in places.
It’s well worth a look. Just watch your step.
