January 9, 1969: It could be a scene of the ice breaking up in Alaska, but it isn’t. the Hood River formed this ice choked scene last week when the temperature dipped below 0 degrees. Snow falling on top adds the appearance of ice floes. Actually, there was no movement at all apparent here. The river appeared entirely quiet at the Hood River bridge. The cold forced the flow “underground” at this point and moved the river back into its pre-1964 channel close to the rail road retaining wall in the background. At its mouth, the Hodo River spit large chunks of ice into the Columbia River.
