    It`s a glacier. Still awesome, I love them. They`s purty. I wonder if you can get any small enough to fit in a fridge...

    I want to eat it. That would make a kickass snow cone if you grind it up and put some grape flavoring in there.

    Fayth, there is a Mackinaw City. Boat service to Mackinac Island runs from both St. Ignace - servicing the UP and Mackinaw City - servicing the LP. I had the misfortune of living on Mackinac in my early teens.

    ^^ Yeah, what sking7 said....

    Real photos, not photoshops.
    Glacial erosional feature, not "Frozen Wave".
    In Antarctica, not bloody Michigan.

    How did that happen? It didn`t. Someone made it up. Those things take time to create. You can`t just freeze that much water in seconds. It`s impossible even for mother nature. Right mommy?

    Did ANYONE read the description on the website? People are denying it saying "How does that happen?!?" or "Waves can`t freeze in mid air!" Read the description on the website for pete`s sakes!

    its when the water under the ice like comes out and the much much colder oxygen-rich air meets the water it freezes instantly. i read that a while ago about those pics. not sure if its exactly right

    I don`t think the great lakes freeze during winter because they`re fairly active waters, and there`s no way this winter could cause anything called "supercooled water".
    This winter sucked in North Bay, Ontario....\
    I love this beautiful weather.

    What are you talking about. The website says it`s Lake Huron frozen over....
