Some years the Athabasca River provides cool views for residents here during a phenomenon called River Break. Some years they experience a dynamic river break — which didn't happen this year — where the ice piles up and pushes through the Fort McMurray area as one giant glacier, bouncing off the sides of the river. Pretty cool. This means Spring is coming. Here was my river break experience.

Now we are enjoying spring with beautiful blossoms around the city...and no more ice.
