Ok, Ottawa. We know it’s cold.
But, it is still NOT COLD ENOUGH to skate on the Rideau Canal!!
The Canal’s Twitter account (run by the NCC) sent out some reminders yesterday morning, saying that just because you see workers out on the ice, it does NOT mean it is safe to venture out there yourself.
Not even to do make a cool pattern in the snow, like this person did.
For updates on canal conditions, as well as a map including rest stops and Beavertail stands, you can check out the NCC’s website HERE.
However, a word to the wise, there currently isn’t much to see there.
