Reason #39 Why Summer is Better Than Winter
"I had my hands in the river, my feet back up on the banks..." -The Tragically Hip
When the ice breaks up in the summer, it makes it easier to fit in your drink. When the ice breaks up in the winter, it ain't quite as idyllic.
This is what the Grand River looked like late this afternoon in Cayuga:
More rain and rising temps are forecast overnight, with another 30 mm of wet stuff to land by Friday. There has already been some flooding and if this stuff gets moving downstream it could get really ugly. The upside is that the Lake is going to get some badly needed additional moisture, hopefully raising the water level.
