A lot of people slid their way through the Cathy Lauritsen memorial off-leash dog park in Regina as the temperature warmed up on Thursday.
Cassandra Bruce brought her daughter Sophia and their dog Buddy to play with the other dogs.
“I didn’t expect it to be complete ice,” Bruce said. “I stayed around (at the gate) and Buddy doesn’t mind as he’s happy as long as he can play.”
Most people could be seen walking along the very edge near the chain link fence as that’s where there was the least amount of ice.
Lisa Banville stuck around the gate as she didn’t want to risk it. She was there with her son along with her dog Penny.
“We have a small property so it’s a great place to bring our dog to come and run,” Banville said adding the gorgeous weather was a bonus.
Ten communities broke weather records
It appears Environment Canada was too optimistic with the forecast for Regina on Thursday, instead of hitting 8 C the temperature only reached 4 C which was just shy of a record.
Ten other communities across the province did break weather records on Thursday including: Broadview, Elbow, Kindersley, Leader, Rosetown, Watrous and Wynyard. Saskatoon wasn’t expected to hit the record high but did hit 5.7 C beating out the record of 5 C set in 1923. West of Regina on Highway 1, Moose Jaw broke a record reaching 8.4 C and so did Maple Creek with a high of 11 C.
