Another storm last night, but no glorious morning. Or afternoon. Just a petulant, frowny, in-a-bad-mood giant body of water out there. From this afternoon.

After the Storm

 In the wee hours of the morning, there was a terrible storm. Lots of rain and wind, waves I could hear from my closed up house three blocks away. But oh, what a beautiful morning! These were taken around 9am.
Here is some video footage of the much-calmed, but still beautiful, waves.


Look at those clouds.  From Friday, 9/23.

Same Old, Same Old

More beauty, just like yesterday. From Thursday 9/22.


Midweek beauty.  From Wednesday, 9/21.

I really couldn't think of a title that does justice to these stunning colors. From this afternoon.

Rosy Friday

There's a bit of pink along the horizon, framed by gorgeous clouds and a gray, choppy Lake. From Friday, 9/16.

Happy 3rd birthday, lakemichiblog! And many, many more!

I don't think those clouds are gray because of the smoke plume, but the sky still looks a little strange. And interesting. And beautiful. As always. From this afternoon.

The Tree Stands Alone

This tree appears in lots of photos on this site, but I don't think I've ever put it in the center of the frame before. The Lake looks hazy, because, in an almost unfathomable function of meteorology, we are experiencing a smoke plume from a forest fire in Minnesota. Yes, hundreds of miles from Lake Michigan. It smells terrible. I hope things go well for those fighting the fire. From Tuesday, 9/13/11.

BackBlogging: Storm Drama

One of the more dramatic photos of the June 30th storm: an overturned park pavilion. That's the inside of the pavilion you are seeing; the wind literally scooped it up and flipped it on its back, like a turtle.
And here's a tree snapped like a toothpick. Most of this is cleaned up now. Our parks are more like open fields and less like forests. Five minutes took out over 800 trees city-wide, some of which were growing for 100 years or more. Makes you think.

Backblogging: Blogging the Bay 2

From a bridge overlooking the industrial section of Green Bay. Also early August.

Backblogging: Blogging the Bay

So here's a new location for this blog. Green Bay is not just a football team, it's an actual bay, not always green (as seen above) off of Lake Michigan in northern Wisconsin.
These pics were taken from Bay Beach, a park-district-owned-and-run amusement park right on the lakefront (bayfront?) They were taken from the top of the giant slide (4th pic from the left in this series.)
That chunk of land is on its way to being Door County, the penninsula that sticks out of Wisconsin into Lake Michigan like a thumb. These were taken in early August.

About Last Week


I'm Back! Blogging

After the I'm Back! blogging, I will need to do a LOT of backblogging to catch up from summer. But anyway, this was today. Above, new life in one of the trees broken off in the June storm.

Someone was trying to be romantic with the rocks on the beach. I think it says "...U GO OUT WITH ME?"
Answer: NO. Oh, snap! and with rocks, no less!
And here's a pretty view looking south at dusk.
