Weather - Frozen canal

Continuing this week's theme, since it wasn't snowing today I went for a walk and happened to cross a footbridge over the canal, which for I think the first time in several years was partially frozen. Not particularly thick ice, but it wasn't something I expected.

Unfortunately I'd forgotten to take a camera with me so this is from my iPhone - if I'd had a camera with a decent optical zoom I would have included pictures of a coot that was wandering around on the ice looking very confused...

That is really unusual - and makes me cold just looking at it!
It's fairly unusual, I think the last time was six or seven years ago. London rarely gets that cold for long enough for the canal to freeze over. I've no idea why no boats seem to have been along there and broken the ice, maybe it's so cold everyone is staying in bed...
