Ice in the lower Chesapeake only happens when there is some extended cold period. On January 10th 2015 there was such a time. Mathews County, Virginia is one of those end of the road places. Technically, two roads come into the county but they do meet in one spot. New Point Comfort is the very end of the road after that. There is a lighthouse on the tip of land that extends into the Chesapeake Bay. The tip was decimated in 1933 by a large hurricane. The Light house remains but is not lit and is on an island recently fortified by donations. These images are from the sunset on 1/10/2015 about a mile north of the light. It should be noted that it got warmer the following days and the ice was all gone. It was still cold!
