This morning I walked out to a part of Lake Michigan that normally is under water. The hard freeze of this winter created many frozen glaciers, and they have finally begun to recede.
The lake is now reclaiming the space it occupies in the warmer months, but winter will still linger for a little bit. I could see the deep gashes in the ice, where today’s glacier will eventually be torn off and set adrift. I look forward to that day, but bearing witness to all of the ice was interesting, too.
As the icebergs break free from the glacier ice, the seasons will continue to change, and this winter will finally vanish. Good riddance.
