weird winter wisconsin weather


strange weather this week... ice storm, followed by 55 degrees today, snow tomorrow and then freezing temperatures. And in the time it took to take these pictures and post them all the whiteness is gone and it is completely clear out. The above photo was the view from my desk.



We have been having daily ice quakes which I have written about here and here. They are caused by extreme changes in temperature. We are wondering if the ice quakes are what causes the ice on the shoreline.


And here is a surprising photo. One of our neighbor's boulders is sitting on the ice. These are massive and too heavy for someone to have moved it there. I guess it is just Mother Nature at work.
