After the Winter Storm

This is the third post in a series covering the “blizzard” that happened here in Duluth and across the Midwest on March 17-18th. You can read the first post here, and the second post here.

Once the snow started falling it came down pretty heavily and it started becoming difficult to see the Lake from my window. This shot was taken during a rare break in the clouds above.

Then, all of a sudden, it was GONE! The waves died down, the snow disappeared, and the sun came out! The earth at the bottom of the Lake had been churned up by 2 days of fierce waves and the water was tinted with browns, greens, grays and blues.

Later that night I went down to Canal Park to take a look at what the view was “at sea level.” What I found was that everything had been coated in 2-3 inches of solid ice.
