We waited for the snow to begin Tuesday afternoon and then into the evening. A few snowflakes began at around 6pm and then stopped abruptly an hour later. The kids went to bed hoping for school to be closed the next day as the weather forecaster were still predicting snow. At 5am Daphne needed to go outside. Mike reported back that the driveway was bare – no snow. The winds had been strong and gusty all night long and continued throughout the day on Wednesday. Sustained winds were around 50mph at one point and a gust of 70mph was recorded on the Bong Bridge between Duluth and Superior. The waves on the lake continued to be high. I made a stop in Canal Park at the location I took photos the day before. The spray of lake water in the parking lot was too much for me to even get out of my vehicle – no pictures and still no snow. I couldn’t help but check back this morning (Thursday) after the winds had died down to see what the landscape looked like next to the Aerial Lift Bridge and Lake Superior shore…it was incredible!
Mother nature never ceases to amaze us. Our weather may not be the best in the country, but it certainly is the most interesting and beautiful.
