JESSE FERRELL WALKED ACROSS THE CREEK
The sub-zero temperatures last night caused the D.E.R. creeks and water - falls to freeze. Jesse went down to Shanberg and practiced breakdancing in the middle of the creek! Most parts of the creeks had 1/4 to 1 inch of ice.However, there were a few rare cases such as Shanberg where there were up to 2-1/2 inches. D.E.R. paths were closed so no one would hurt themselves.
