The Thames Freezes Over

In the News

This is the first time I remember this happening in my life time, this seems a little surreal

Wow... Although that looks beautiful I just hope no one is silly enough to think they can walk on it.

They would have to be really silly, as I'm sure it can't be that thick, but you can never underestimate the stupidity of some people ๐Ÿ™‚

A few lochs and river near me have frozen over the last couple of months and people ice skate on them and all sorts. Look nice and people think it is cool until someone falls through โ˜น๏ธ

RachHC It breaks my heart when I read about people being silly thinking the ice won't break and tragedy strikes. It could be so easily avoided. Just hope no one loses their life in being silly or someone rescuing them.

I think it was Tower Bridge where I saw pictures of everyone skating on it in Victorian Times. It used to freeze over regularly then.
