The cold has tightened it’s grip upon the land and is making every effort to smother everything in it’s path.  I get shivers just looking at this image.

The Spirit of Winter

Winters can get very cold around Lake Superior, so cold in fact almost anything can become frozen.  This truly is the spirit of winter in the northland.

Everything Is Frozen

As many know, much of the U.S is in the grips of some very nasty weather, including extremely cold temperatures.  It seems as though the world is freezing solid.  Even when looking down from lofty heights, the world looks cold and forsaken, as though the clouds are merely wisps of ice floating through the heavens.

Is the cold confusing the senses? Is the world truly frozen?  Or, if we look closer, will we discover that it is the water world that is frozen, and the clouds are wisps of snow blowing across the ice.
