Ice Is Nice

Take a look at the Churchill River as it starts to freeze up. This river has fresh water and therefore it freezes well before the salty Hudson Bay does. The movement of the river makes the ice very chunky and dynamic, this isn’t a smooth skating rink! Though Hudson Bay does not yet have ice, this river freezing up is a good indication that the sea ice is getting closer.
