Viewfinder: Early Spring Comes to Rice Creek in Fridley
Water's rushing, birds are chirping, but winter hasn't quite let go along Rice Creek.
Beyond the rush of highways is a different Fridley where creek waters do the rushing.
Early spring has come to Rice Creek, but evidence of winter remains in patchy snow piles and pools of pale green ice.
You still hear the hum of traffic, but it's mixed with bird chirps, crow caws, duck quacks, creek burbles, and the occasional, mournful train horn.
It's a different world, and it'll change fast with warming temps.
