After the arctic vortex: Ice, fog and monuments on the Potomac

I don’t have the skills for a photo-driven blog (that’d be my multi-talented wife) but today’s scene on the Potomac was too remarkable not to capture. I wasn’t the only one who felt this way — lots of people were pulling their cars over to record and Instagram the moment as rain turned the choppy gray ice on the river, left over from the brief bitter cold of the “arctic vortex,” directly to fog — like an experiment from high school chemistry, with all the phases of water (solid, liquid, gas) plus monuments and seagulls. Here’s what it looked like:
