Originally our plan for today was to hop in the car and drive a hour over to the big city of Marathon (population 4000) to shop.
But because of that four lettered word, which I refuse to say, I will now have to get out of bed at the most ridiculous hour of 7AM so we can hurry to Marathon and back before we get a fresh dump of 15cm’s of ----.
Isn’t that just awful?
I heard today that this was the first time that the Great Lakes had all frozen over since 2009.
This is a photo taken from our home on Lake Superior last February.
If you look carefully you can see the trees from the Parisian Island that was eight miles across the lake from us.
This was all open water, not a Bay, and I can’t remember a year when the lake didn’t freeze across since we had lived there.
We never knew from one year to the other what our lake front would look like!
Sometimes it looked like an ice jam.
At other times it joins forces with the wind to create the most unusual shapes.
One thing for certain, Lake Superior is ever changing and ever full of surprises…
I love the mysterious!
Oh, about that four lettered word;
I sure pulled the wool over your eyes on that one!
Have a great Thursday!
