I regularly drive past the Bison River and I always check on its state as I go by. Two weeks ago it was frozen almost completely solid but contained many ice heaves as a trickle of water, insulated by the thick ice, continued to run through underneath during the winter.
But a freely running channel has now opened up as our daylight hours continue to lengthen and the sun shines on the ice for longer periods. We now only have about seven hours of darkness, and these will shorten to about two hours of twilight as we near the solstice.

The North awakens. Happy Days Lynette. The warming spring days before black flies and mosquitoes. Sighhhh. Happy Saturday. Allan
Yes, it’s moving along at a rapid rate now. Much better than last year when it dragged on and on. Yes, I am very conscious of enjoying our present bug-free state! Cheers, Allan.
Spring is springing!!!
Yes, it is, and springing high and fast!
It’s amazing how quickly the landscape can transform in the Spring, especially when the sun is shining
Agreed. I am always slightly amazed at how quickly that happens here. Months of snow accumulation is gone in a couple of weeks. The river and lake ice always takes longer to melt, but even that is pretty fast.
