Lake ice can be pretty weird and wonderful, too!

This has been a weird winter for ice and although we’ve had our usual suite of fascinating river ice phenomenon – it’s hard to top some of the weird lake ice occurrences we’ve being seeing on the internet this past little while. Here are my two favorite recent links…

The first one is a video posted on YouTube by the Glen Arbor Artisans.  It was taken on Lake Michigan, ands shows tens of thousands (maybe millions!) of large ice balls all along the shoreline and well out into the lake:

The second is a photo taken that was taken by Vesa Kaloinen at Lake Suolijärvi in Tuulos, Finland.  Snow falling on the lake created some weird submerged ice (snow?) that looked like huge strands of noodles.

Thanks to my river ice friends who shared these with me.

Hope you enjoy these!  Have a great week!
