03 Mar Rows and flows of angel hair: Cape Breton in March
View of Cape Breton Island on Friday, March 2, from 710 km. This detail, from a much larger NASA Terra satellite image, was created by hydrologist Fred Baechler. The larger image shows northern Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Cape Breton, and is well worth a look.
Unusually for this time of year, the Bras d’Or Lake is largely ice-free aside from St. Patrick’s Channel and the basins between Orangedale and Malagawatch. Lake Ainsley, Loch Lomand, Lake Uist, St. Ann’s Harbour, Aspy Bay, South Harbour, and the Mira remain ice-covered. There’s not much snow on Cape Breton, even less on the mainland.
