Signs of spring at Palmerston Lake in Ompah, Ontario

We took a drive up to our cottage on Palmerston Lake in Ompah, Ontario today to see if spring has arrived up there.  Although there is quite a bit more snow up there than here in Ottawa and it was 5 degrees cooler, there were a few signs of spring…

and the water levels are really high:


Looks like it may be a while before we will be swimming in Palmerston Lake!
