Ice Safety 101
With the recent swings in weather now is a good time to brush up on the dangers of ice.
Did you know the colour of ice may be an indication of its strength?
- Clear blue ice is strongest.
- White opaque or snow ice is half as strong as blue ice. Opaque ice is formed by wet snow freezing on the ice.
- Grey ice is unsafe. The grayness indicates the presence of water.
