Actually, I have. I visited friends in Marquette and while the waves certainly were NOT that big they still froze in a "wave". I've never forgotten it. That's gonna be some "high tide" when they thaw out! LOL

That's truly amazing. I've never seen that before.

That's pretty cool, Constance. Thanks for the photos.
I live along Lake Erie and have seen some pretty crazy ice, but nothing that extreme. The big thing here are ice dunes, which are hollowed out "mountains" of ice that form close to shore from the waves pounding, sometimes 20 ft high. People climb them and fall right through, of course unable to get out.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

Apparently they had some crazy blizzard weather this weekend up in Duluth, MN at the end of Lake Superior... but I've never seen anything like that! Wow!
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

And I thought the Glacier in the south island of New Zealand was big.

Would not have wanted to be there when that was created, nor when it melts!
