Ice on Lake St. Clair

With alternate freezing and thawing, high winds, rain, snow, more
freezing, the ice on Lake St. Clair is varied, broken, patchy and
interesting. This ice fisherman caught about 6 small perch while we
were there, three of them big enough for dinner.

wow these are amazing pictures - I didn't realise Detroit got so cold!

Thanks Hyde! If you are looking for my ABC Wednesday post, it's at No Polar.

Goes not only below freezing, but sometimes well below zero in Detroit, though it's mostly been a little warmer than usual this year.

Wow, these photos are wonderful!

That doesn't look like ice I'd want to be standing on.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

I guess the ice was about 6 inches thick, at least in some places. But I Wasn't standing on it. I saw some parents take their kids out on it, and there thin spots,; it made me nervousn!

Thanks Erin and Marie.
