Smart, Attractive Couple Walks on (Frozen) Water

Is it really a great idea to walk across the Schuylkill River?

Our friend HughE Dillon sends us these pics of Oliver and Jenny from Love Story  a lovely couple walking onto the frozen Schuylkill River this week—right next to parts that, given then apparent presence of standing water instead of ice (though that might just be ice without snow on it) suggests the support might’ve been a little thin. Did they get great pics? Yes. We’re just glad neither one of them drowned.

    this river hasn’t frozen over since the 1970s that I remember.. I hear it froze back in the late 1800s all the time, and that’s how the Philadelphia Skating Club and Humane Society was formed.. to join you agreed to bring a rope to pull out the unlucky skaters.
