How dry is it out there?
So dry a bridge normally well submerged below Guelph Lake is now nearly a foot above the water line. And that's no joke.
I went out this morning to have a look at the bridge -- which used to connect Conservation Road to Jones Baseline, before the whole valley was flooded in the early '70s to create the lake -- and found it acting as a fairly popular fishing platform.
One angler drowning worms with his sons told me he usually fishes from the bridge, but accesses it wearing his hip-waders and stands in water up to his waist.
No need for waders today.
