A fresh fall of snow overnight is melting into pools of trouble for some pedestrians.
Water has now backed up thanks to the warmer temperatures that have melted the 10-or-more centimeters of snow that dropped on Thunder Bay. In some cases that means huge ponds of water are collecting in areas where vehicles and pedestrians often meet — such as at the Canadian Lakehead Exhibition grounds.
As Linda Lou Bates scanned the parking lot on Monday afternoon, she observed a pool of water the size of a baseball diamond.
"Well, I think somebody can go swimming in there pretty soon," she said.
"It's disgusting ... I mean if you're walking along there and somebody's driving through with a car, you're going to be head to toe wet."
