Winter weather in the Midwest creates challenges.
Today I slid all over the road,
aloud that my SUV would get a grip.

My spirits sink with so much grey weather
and below zero-ness; but visually, sweet mother,
frosty beauty is everywhere.
Today I'm taking you to the ice caves
at the Apostle Islands on the Wisconsin
coast of Lake Superior.
(We live a baby step from the Wisconsin border.)
Because of our historic deep freeze, for the first time
since 2009, it is safe enough to make the trek over
the frozen lake to visit these gorgeous ice caves.
The beauty of the ice formations is a result of
a cool autumn and polar vortexes this winter.
Freeze and thaw cycles have created
something magical, and how fun that
admirers may walk on water to
arrive to planetary bliss.
Chosen a favorite image yet?
I hope to make the 2-mile skate across the lake
soon to view the frozen spectacle for myself...
and a trip to Canada at the end of this week
promises arctic wows too.
"In winter the stars seem to have rekindled their fires,
the moon achieves a fuller triumph,
and the heavens wear a look of a more exalted simplicity."
Peace to you right where you are.
