Lake Superior Ice Cover

The Lake Superior Ice Cover is nearing 100% - perhaps by the end of the week we will see it completely covered. Very "Cool" to say the least.

Sailboats on Ice

Soon there will be signs of Springtime in the Northland, but for now, the snow covered boats at Barkers Island Marina seem OK with the winters rest. I'm not quit sure about the boaters!

If you have a mobile device, you can view these links and get a real immersive experience by turning with the device and looking around.

Lake Superior Ice Cover

Lake Superior entirely freezes over about every 20 years.  It looks like this will be one of those years. Just when everyone was getting used to Global Warming!

-22F and -50 Wind Chill --- Is it Cold Enough for Ya!

Clear blue skies, -22F and -50F Wind Chill is a great time to visit Canal Park to get a "Real Feel" for the Northland. Since it probably won't be quit this cold again for awhile, at least until tomorrow,  I though I would stop down and see what I could see.
Although there weren't many people around, Lake Superior is still here with all it's pristine beauty and dressed up in winter white.
Although I can't blow some cold air your way, I thought a few 360 panoramas might give you a look at Canal Park when it is this cold.

Ice Caves

A visit to the frozen wonderland of the Apostle Island Sea Caves is always a great walk, especially since it has been 5 years since the ice has been good enough to venture across the frozen waters of the big lake.
