I can't tell you if hell is freezing over today, but it appears that Gitchee Gumee might be judging from this webcam located in Copper Harbor at the very tip of Michigan. Brrr...it's cold.
Speaking of Gitchee Gumee, a.k.a. Lake Superior, I wanted to share some pictures of the lake my aunt sent me. They were taken in November aboard the Misener Steamships MV Selkirk Settler (a Canadian company) as she crossed Lake Superior. The first picture shows her in calm water, but conditions deteriorate rapidly when a storm blows in. If you ever wondered why the Edmund Fitzgerald didn't make it, these pictures will explain it all.
Update: I'm deeply indebted to an anonymous commenter who alerted me to the fact that what I told you about these pictures is incorrect. If you check the comment section, you'll see the link that explains these pictures were taken on February 13, 1987 in the N. Atlantic. I am so sorry. I tried to find information about this ship before I posted the pics, but I didn't have much success. Unfortunately, this is one of the hazards of the internet. My aunt's friend sent her the pictures and she trusted that the information was correct, and I in turn trusted my aunt who lives next to Lake Superior. I think that fact added to my belief that the information she sent was indeed accurate. After all, yoopers don't lie! Anyway, I'm sorry for misleading everyone. I'll leave the pictures online for everyone to enjoy, but just be aware they weren't taken on Lake Superior in November.
