Mike’s drive to work on Thursday morning was -34 degrees.  It may have warmed up a few degrees when I left 45 minutes later, but my car’s thermometer only goes as low as -22.  I didn’t know that until this year.  I guess Nissan doesn’t think it gets colder than that.  Well, it does.  It was brutally cold this week and the wind made it even more miserable.  School was canceled for three days.  That. Never. Happens. In. Minnesota.

It had warmed up to a balmy -15 by sunset on Thursday.  Mike and I stopped by a few places along the shore of Lake Superior to check out the ice.  Mike viewed it from the warmth of his Jeep.  I ventured out to take photos.  It was nice of him to keep the vehicle warm for me.

 

By Friday, temperatures were above zero.  That’s when I saw people ice fishing on the big lake near Canal Park.  I chose to take photos safely from shore.

Spring is just around the corner…right?

  1. Stunning picture. This is like the weather we had every couple of years when I first lived here (coming from Southern California)in the 60’sand 70’s. The only difference is the warm up was not as warm. Thanks for braving the cold to get great pictures!
