It’s official. After temperatures in the teens all day and a low of zero degrees, we usher in winter. Although we now are committed to keeping our wood stoves going around the clock, others are not ready to give in to the freezing temperatures. Particularly, the thermal waters emerging in Warm Springs. At 98 degrees, the springs nor the upper portion of the “run” will ever freeze but the temperature difference is enough to frost everything it touches and create quite the smokestack effect. The amount of steam rising from the thermal waters can always tell you indeed how cold it is.
