….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.
…..for those who don’t know the 19 stands for the year the virus came to be
Here in Toronto we are just about to go to stage 2 which means that things will start to open with some restrictions, such as hair salons and outdoor patios. All around our neighbourhood there are signs that indicate that we still need to be careful, wear a mask and stay socially distant. They also show how this virus has impacted some families.
