Spring ride

Hi, Folks,

Had my third ride this year today - I went along the Niagara River Parkway to Fort Erie where the ice boom across the mouth of the Niagara River had broken during a horrendous wind storm we had in mid-February.

The wind drove the ice ashore and up over the breakwall for about 1/2 mile - it's still impressive after almost a month.

lesblank, tpeach66 and graybeard like this.

Actually the wind blew most of the ice ashore - that same day I drove along the river and saw almost no ice until south of the bridge - if that ice had flowed down the river it would have been in the millions and may have even dammed the falls. We just got lucky.
