    I agree with you, Paul and would like to add two thoughts regarding
    the use of seasonal:<br>
    <br>
    • According to the wiki it is not only in use with water(ish) tags.
    Some examples are listed and ice_rink is one of them. In this wiki
    entry seasonal is listed as possible tag, too. So seasonal could
    apply here in general.<br>
    • The bridge does not fall dry every autumn but only in hot years
    with little rain, thus in the concrete situation seasonal seems not
    the best tag from my point of view. Intermittent is more strictly
    bound to water, so that won't apply either.<br>
    <br>
    I think I will go with the conditional and a free-form text. In my
    eyes, that accords with the wiki documentation.<br>

          <div>I expressed my point unclearly.  It appears from the
            examples that the</div>
          <div>condition is free-form text.  However, when the condition
            specifies<br>
          </div>
          <div>opening hours then those hours should be expressed in the
            standard</div>
          <div>form for opening_hours.  That opening_hours allows
            free-form text is</div>
          <div>a digression.  Unless you were seriously suggesting that
            we</div>
          <div>abuse opening_hours as a way of introducing free-form
            text into</div>
          <div>a condition even though it appears (to me, at least) that
            conditions</div>
          <div>permit free-form text anyway.<br>
          </div>
          <div><br>
          </div>
          <div>Do you concur that a conditional such as "(low water)" is
            permissible?  If</div>
          <div>so, do you agree that it is a better solution than
            "seasonal" or "intermittent"?</div>
          <div>Using "seasonal" is unhelpful because low water is
            possible (if unlikely)</div>
          <div>during all seasons.  Using "intermittent" is somewhat
            better.</div>
          <div><br>
          </div>
          <div>But both "seasonal" and "intermittent" are (currently)
            only defined as</div>
          <div>applying to water(ish) features themselves, not to things
            that are under</div>
          <div> those features.  Changes would have to be made to
            routers to allow</div>
          <div>either seasonal or intermittent to be interpreted
            correctly when applied</div>
          <div>to ways.  Routers already (I hope) interpret
            conditionals.<br>
