Happy New Year!

The cold continues and the Humber River ice is thickening. At this part of the river, water never freezes with a smooth surface – it’s just lumps of ice that have floated downstream and frozen together at this point. As winter progresses, the thickening process continues, snow and sometimes rain will be added. During a thaw, water flow increases and the ice forms a dam. Eventually, the ice breaks up and floats ashore in huge thick chunks (which I have never managed to witness).The trees along the bank bear the scars of previous years’ breakups.
