Lots of talk as to when the ice will be out and concerns of flooding. One thing very noticeable on the Big 3 lakes is how low the water levels have dropped in anticipation of the spring run off. I don’t think I have ever seen it this low. With this years record snowfall I’m sure the pressure is on the Ministry to manage the levels very carefully. Here is an interesting chart published by Algonquin Park showing the accumulation of snow on the ground 2013 vs. 2014.
Don’t forget the Cottage Life show this weekend March 28 -30, 2014 in Toronto.
When you stand amongst the forest you can feel a transformation approaching. There is a certain softness, a stillness and a freshness permeating the air. It’s not obvious nor distinct but I sense it deeply embodied in my soul.
