The waterfowl in Canaan Valley are struggling as the amount of open water
continues to dwindle. It was blowing and snowing most of the day today up
there. The Blackwater River is frozen over at places and has some open
pools at others. Where Beall Lane crosses the river, I saw seven Hooded
Mergansers swimming and diving in the narrowing stream. At another place,
there were three Mallards huddled against a bank in a small pool of water.
Hopefully they will get some relief tomorrow, but tonight is to be below
zero again. Herb Myers, Harman, Randolph County from Tucker County
