It’s amazing how much difference a bit of shade makes. I thought the snow and ice had pretty much all melted a good few weeks ago. But then a couple of days ago I took a different route home from work and cycled past this lake, which is still coated in ice! The shores are clear, but from the centre almost to the edge is a layer of ice. Sure, it’s not thick, but it’s there.
I don’t expect that even this shaded ice can last much longer though. It might even be gone now! We’ve had a few much warmer days, and it’s expected to get into the mid-high teens (celsius, that is) this weekend.
Have I mentioned how happy sunshine makes me?
