Going, Going, Gone…..and back again

April 30, 2014

It seems A.D.D. is not just for hyper kids and over stressed workers. This spring both Lake Superior ice and weather seem to be having trouble staying focused on one task – WARMING UP!

Admittedly it is fun watching the ice break up and then wondering who is going to end up with a giant unwanted pile of it stacked up on their shoreline. From here a west wind will push it to Saxon Harbor, a south wind will transport it to the Minnesota north shore or even Canada, a north or east wind just packs it back in here (last choice!)

The sea caves- watch- camera located along the popular stretch of sea caves off of Meyers road takes pictures of the water (or ice) conditions every daylight hour: http://wavesatseacaves.cee.wisc.edu/

It’s been fun to watch the sequence of ice break-up images out there in the very spot that hosted over 138,000 visitors this winter. And not a footprint remains.
