Water, Water Everywhere – #62

thanks to Jez for hosting Water, Water Everywhere https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2021/02/01/melting-water-water-everywhere-62/

On my walks I’m most happiest when I’m near water. Here are some of the lakes, creeks and ponds that I’ve passed in the last couple of weeks. Grenadier Pond, Lake Ontario, Twenty Mile Creek and Black Creek.

Encased in Ice

….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.
