A pleasantly simple solution

George Barnewall told me about a problem created by our recent heavy rainfalls.

Danica and I rode our bikes down to have a look, today.

Water now covers what is usually a huge expanse of dry sand. A sandbar forms a bridge between the new pond and Lake Ontario.

Nice, eh? No engineering studies, committee meetings or massive pumps. Somebody remembered what you can do with a beach pail and shovel. City workers simply dug a little channel from pond to lake.
