Lake Michigan on Jan. 29, 2014; frozen to the horizon!


A gorgeous (and dangerously cold!) afternoon on the shore of Lake Michigan.  I haven’t seen the lake freeze like this since 1997.  It used to freeze every winter in past decades, but it rarely happens now as a result of global climate change. Unfortunately, this is one reason why the lakes are shrinking; without ice, more water is allowed to evaporate.
