Ha ha! Since I installed a sitemeter, I can find out where my blog readers are coming from, and lately, a surprising number are coming from googling "Striped icebergs Lake Michigan." This is because of a hoax e-mail going around claiming that the icebergs pictured above have been found In Lake Michigan.
A quick look at Snopes reveals that the icebergs are real, but they are NOT, I repeat, NOT in Lake Michigan. It doesn't get cold enough, folks. Yes, we have "icebergs" but not that size or that white. We here at LakeMichiblog love ice on the lake, and we'll be sure to report seeing anything this size as soon as it appears!
February 3, 2011 update: Welcome googlers! Apparently the hoax e-mail is being recirculated this year as I have been getting 100 or so hits every day on this post. Remember, when in doubt about any e-mail you receive, always run it through Snopes.com. And since you are here, why not look around at the rest of the pretty pictures of Lake Michigan? Thanks for stopping by!
February 21, 2011 update: I found an interesting explanation of how icebergs are formed. It makes it very clear this could not happen in any Great Lake. Enjoy!
