icebergs in lake michigan

Got an intersting Email today about icebergs in Lake Michigan. I thought the lake was a bit big to get that cold.

Great pictures, but not from around here.

Ohh... they exist. Here's a photo I took several years ago one spring on Lake Michigan. They aren't typically nearly as large as some but they do exist...

I should add... the one in that photo I have is the size of a small house... small being maybe 800 sq feet interior size... big shed/small house... LOL.

I'll have to go down to St. Joseph tomorrow and look. I seen some ice bergs last year. This year, there were 15-20 foot mounds of ice in the lake, and as the ice melts, it breaks and floats away. I imagine there are some ice bergs floating around.

There's still some ice on the North Pier, but no ice bergs on Lake Michigan around St. Joseph.

I've seen some cold whales but no icebergs in the big lake.
