Here is a picture of sheets of ice starting to break up on the Des Moines River, in downtown Des Moines. With the warmer forecast, I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot more water soon. That should make the Canada geese happy, they were swimming on whatever open water they could find. I actually saw a huge bald eagle in the tree tops by the river yesterday, but was driving and couldn't stop for a picture. Hurry up, Spring!
