In this context, "canals" is more precise than "channels". (Also, since I'm commenting anyway, and because it might amuse you, I saw your username and guessed that you lived in Madrid and were posting a photo taken yesterday or today. I was surprised to see so little snow until I read the caption).

@Peter Taylor thanks, edited! (not sure what on my profile suggests I live in Madrid... Not the avatar, I guess :P)

Nothing: it was just a wild extrapolation from knowing that you're a Spanish speaker (and having the strong impression that a native Spanish speaker), and you posting a photo of snow the day after my news was full of stories about record snowfall in Madrid. Now that you mention the avatar I twig what it is, but I haven't seen many lazos amarillos around Valencia so I didn't recognise it without the prompt to think about what it might mean.

@Peter Taylor Yes, are right! I am a native Spanish speaker and living in the area right now! Good to know we are close-by, for whenever we schedule the first Codidact meetup :)
