In the morning on New Year's Day, I took a stroll through Streetsville. Signs of the ice storm that hit southern Ontario before Christmas were all over the area. This included a large tree that had smashed through this fence.
Nearby, I took a trail down into the Credit River valley. The paths are snow covered this time of year, and with bent and broken trees around, it took some care moving about.
These grasses and thistles caught my eye amid the snow.
I've walked through this valley before. The ice storm did more than its share of damage. Some trees here have been damaged beyond help. Others may pull through in the spring.
More from the Credit River tomorrow...
