F is for freezing. Our mild winter has turned into a wild winter. Temperatures plummeted this past weekend. Saturday wind chills were well below zero degrees Fahrenheit, too cold to be outside for more than a few minutes.
I watched a video of the car being slowly and steadily lashed by the icy waves of Lake Ontario and shuddered to think that this young man could easily have been encased, along with his car, in the icy Lake Ontario shore. Yesterday the temperatures were warmer, but nearly two feet of snow fell on the region. We could have made a grim discovery come spring. Instead we have reason to rejoice.
More ABC Wednesday here.
PS. Photos (not mine) were taken on Saturday morning while the car was visible and the following day after it was totally encased in the shoreline.
