ALBION – Call me naïve, but I think winter is finally ready to make way for spring. I took this picture on Monday evening on the Erie Canal in Albion.

The bottom of the canal still has a little water in the winter and it mostly froze in the latest cold spell.

This is the spot where Sandy Creek runs under the Erie Canal, just west of Brown Street.

Thursday and Friday will see temperatures reach near 50 degrees. In about a month, the canal will open for its 190th season.
