As the first day of arctic wind pushes the Charles downriver, its southern edge squeezes into the Storrow Lagoon, dooming the warmth of fast flowing water to a losing battle with the slush and ice of the protected shallows. One day later, arctic air still whips sub-zero wind chills and the river all but gives up its fight, lying still as ice stretching from shore to shore.
