fissures, explicated

saturday, fissures.
a crack runs across the reservoir surface, south to north, dividing the icy crust in two.
the storm moving in later today will bring rain, then snow perhaps, upon the reservoir, but I am certain that the crack will not repair.
next week the reservoir surface will have two large floating ice sections, gradually diminishing, and soon there will be tens if not hundreds of smaller segments, floating, drifting, decreasing, melting, slipping away into the body of the reservoir itself.
and then, dear friends, it will be officially spring.
