Heftige Regenfälle und Schneeschmelze machen dem Nordosten Kanadas zurzeit schwer zu schaffen. Die Folge: Tausende Häuser stehen unter Wasser, viele Menschen müssen in Sicherheit gebracht werden.

Still not fixed or demolished! This historic building, McGee House, partially collapsed in July 2018 and has not been fixed yet!

A disquieting scene in #Ottawa yesterday on the Rideau River. A girl's dolls and toys thrown onto the #ice, obviously not an accident, as this would have been at least three or four handfuls of toys.

Ice #skating with @Kathryn Barr at #Landsdowne in #Ottawa yesterday. We walked the 8 km up there to do the #skate, too. This is an artificially-cooled rink, and so it was nice and hard even though it was sunny and about -4°C at the time. Non-cooled rinks might get soft at that temperature and with the bright sunshine.

#Snowshoeing in #Ottawa yesterday. With the canal conditions not very good (rough and bumpy), and snow conditions for XC skiing quite poor due to ice everywhere, snowshoeing is next on the list as it can be done on really poor snow and ice.

The rodent is an American Red Squirrel.

#Skating the Rideau Canal today and saw this official sign. It neglected to mention the number of hospital visits. Fun fact: we have a paramedic station right on the ice.
