Eh? Freezing Point

It has been a while since I have had chemistry, but does not water tend to freeze solid at 0 degrees C? Nice water crossing picture though. I bet those wet rocks were hell with the Scorpions.

3C is 37.4F. More importantly, moving water like he is riding in may not freeze until the temperature gets well below 0 (C). The stream feeding the lake up here didn't freeze until after we'd had several days on mid teen (F) temps (-10C)
