With the quick melt, there is a considerable ice jam in the mouth of Mimico Creek and I would not be surprised if that were true elsewhere also. The water level in the creek is rising upstream as a result.
Lake Shore Blvd seems well above the rising waters but there is a low point on the road in Humber Bay Park West that might flood a bit.
PS. Be careful walking out there. It’s slippery!
Edit: the ice jam is mostly clear now and the water level has lowered substantially.
Early evening over Lake Shore Blvd West in Mimico.
I think the shot may be of interest simply as a depiction of this part of Etobicoke in the evening but a detail in the shot may be of some further interest. This is not intended to initiate a discussion of world events. The Ukrainian consulate is in the building in the lower centre of the shot. If you look closely you will see that a demonstration is going on. That is also why there is a backup in traffic on the street.
Not sure how I'm expected to react to this photo.
Is it a joyous image of children at play?
.......a shocking image of adolescent vandalism?
.......a display of adult boredom?
.......a secret political message?
Or just a sign of the times?
