R storms generally clear away with this
wind: the heaviest falls of snow, and the most continued rains, come
the eastern breezes. The great lakes are never frozen in their
centers, but a strong border of thick ice extends
for some distance from the shore: in severe weather, a beautiful
evaporation in various fantastic shapes ascends from the vast surfaces
of these inland seas, forming cloudy columns and
pyramids to a great height in the air: this is caused by the water
being of a higher temperature than the atmosphere above. The chain

of shallow lakes from Lake Simco toward the midland district are
rarely frozen over more than an inch in thickness till about
and are free from ice again by the end of March. The earth in Upper
is seldom froze more than twelve or eighteen inches deep, and the

covering of the snow is about a foot and a half in thickness. In
Canada the Indian
summer is perhaps the most delightful period of the year. During most
of November the weather is mild and serene; a soft, dry haze pervades
the air, thickening toward the horizon; in the evenings the
sun sets in a rich crimson flush, and the temperature is mild and
genial: the birds avail themselves
of the Indian summer for their migration. A phenomenon called the
"tertian intervals" has excited much interest, and is still
unexplained: at
the end of the third day the greatest intensity of frost is always
remittent, and succeeded by several days of mild weather. The climate
is so dry that

metals rarely are rusted by exposure to the air. This absence of
humidity prevents the extremes of heat and cold from being so
