  1. Beautiful, even if it’s unusual to see. When we have brutally cold weather I try to get down to the Detroit River at a park about three miles from my house. It is amazing to see the waves frozen in place. Huge slabs of ice and when it starts to thaw, the slabs crash up on he boulders and shatter. My Wordless Wednesday post was something colorful which we won’t be seeing til around May:

    1. Seeing the waves frozen in place must be a fantastic sight, Linda. And more so when the thaw sets in, although I wouldn’t want to be near any of those frozen slabs of ice as they shatter.

      1. Yes, the weight of the ice slabs combined with waves and wind is fierce Hugh and a few years ago, the frozen slabs rammed into a century-old lighthouse in the Detroit River, leaving gaping holes in the bottom of it.

        1. They did repair it Hugh but they had to raise the funds to do so through the Historical Society of Grosse Ile as the lighthouse is not a landmark, nor used to guide boats and is out of commission. Those ice slabs also go over the seawalls crashing into homes if they don’t break up first. Shoreline living is scenic but worrisome!

      1. I hear you and totally understand how you appreciate the closeness to the beach.
        Oh, yes, no problem. I am lucky to have a car that I can “pre-heat” in advance (an electrical car – no engine starting). That way it defrosts the windows already from the worst.

    1. Hi Terri. I took this photo the week before Christmas. We had ten days of freezing temperatures. Even the sand on the beach was frozen. Only the 2nd time I’ve seen it happen in my lifetime.

      1. That’s pretty incredible, Hugh! It must be odd indeed to see these conditions. Your image is quite stunning with all the layers of color.

        The northern hemisphere is certainly experiencing a lot of snow and ice than normal. There are fat snowflakes falling as I type this at 8:00 am, it’s going to be weeks before any of our accumulated snow melts, and more is coming. I hope for warmer weather for us all but it is STILL January. Stay warm!
