Like the daily post for today (see below) this shot has a weird mythic quality. It should be the cover for some medieval fantasy type book. I'm in awe.
In the next few weeks, posting may be sporadic, and may include other large bodies of water beside LM due to holiday travel. But there's bound to be some interesting snow and ice, so I will try to post occasionally so we can celebrate the weather extremes on the Lake.
But in the meantime, have a great holiday season and take a stroll through the archives if you need to be reminded of warm weather....

Seriously, it is NASTY out there today. Here on the western shore we get very little lake effect snow, but we're getting some today--big wet flakes. I guess I'd need a faster camera to capture the horizontal snowfall.

This is a shot of a beautiful first big (-ish--about 4 inches) snowfall we had last night and this morning.
And this one should give you a sense of the power of the waves. It looks rather serene because of the sky color, but the waves are big and loud today. I could hear them inside the house all night. They are still very loud outside my office window right now.
An added bonus in this pic is that you can see the dumpster. There's a dumpster right outside, below my window. I can only see it when I am standing up, but it is there. It serves its purpose as a contrast to the beauty of the Lake.
A final note: This is my first day back in the office after a 10 day respite. And I have to admit, I missed it. Even though I saw the Lake a lot while I was away from the office, I thought about what the Lake would look like from this vantage point several times. And the first thing I wanted to do when I got back here was to take a photo of the Lake after this first substantial snow. It really is lovely.
The power of blogging is that I am more aware of the Lake now. I guess that's kind of a zen thing, though I doubt most people would see anything involving computers that way. But if not for the blog, I wouldn't be so aware of the Lake; one doesn't really work without the other.
