The ice has broken – spring is here

Since the kids have had all of this week off school for Easter break, I decided to take today off.  Fiona and I ran an errand, and on our way back we swung by River Street to check the ice at the boat launch.

At first glance it looked as though the ice was still holding.

However a second look revealed that the ice was flowing downriver.  To prove it I took a short video clip with my digital camera – poor quality but enough to see the ice movement.

This was at around 11:30 this morning, so I’ll assume that the ice broke after midnight.  i.e. Linea is the icebreaker winner.  Unlike Marc, I don’t have any pilcrows to give out, so an Attagirl will have to do.
