Well, not smoke exactly; more like fog.
I'm speaking of my favorite lake. Lake Superior. There have been some very pretty mornings with a fog blanketing the Greatest of the Great Lakes. But it is a sad image that we are seeing now...and each year (heck each MONTH) seems to get worse.
Biskit had posted some photos a while back of Lake Superior "shoreline"...and where there SHOULD be water, there was now beachfront. It made me feel so badly that I could not even finish looking at the photos.
If you click on the link I have provided you, it will take you to a story about Lake Superior at the all time low in recorded history. The article goes on to state that Lake Huron isn't far behind. As much as we all want snow, I hope it is NOT lake effect snow and that we get a LOT of system snow.
Anytime I have the opportunity to be at the shoreline of one of our Great Lakes, I can't help but visualize what it was like when the Native Americans lived, hunted and rowed their canoes here. And I wonder, how sad they would be to see things the way they are now.
