…who plays tennis outside in January in Canada?????
I know that the government is encouraging people to get outside for exercise during this pandemic but I never imagined that I would see people playing tennis in the middle of January.
….it may come as a surprise that there is any ice anywhere with these crazy mild weather we’ve been having
That said there are many areas where ponds are dangerously covered in thin layers of ice. There are signs all over Grenadier Pond that the ice is too thin to walk on but any fool should be able to see that from the open water near the middle of the pond. Every day the ice gets thinner and thinner but the weather is starting to change and it should freeze over again. Not sure how long it will take for it to be safe but I’m not going to test it out.
I always find it amazing that trees can survive the extreme temperatures, especially those that are already growing out of the water. Here are some shots of the ponds in High Park over the last five days.

Most of us use our phones and GPS to find directions but there are still lots of old fashion ways to find your way around. This sign in High Park is one of them.
