Superior Blizzard

The last day of February 2012 brought in a powerful blizzard to the Head of the Lakes.  60MPH northeast winds, and a foot of snow closed schools and snarled traffic. 
There was beauty on the Lake Superior shoreline though. With the wind, ice pellets, sea spray, and roar of the waves, the power of the big lake was an awesome sight. Much different then the peaceful afternoon yesterday on the Split Rock Lighthouse shoreline.
Enjoy the storm pictures, I have to go shovel now!
