Ice shoves and a hot sunset!

We went to Calumet Park today to see the ice shoves. It was so cold and windy that we couldn't stay out there long. But we weren't disappointed. Jeff is 6 feet tall, so you can see just how big these pieces of ice were.

Ice as far as you can. This is early, but we have had warmer tempuratures and it has been very windy. That has brought the ice in. You can actually see open water in the distance.

Pretty blue ice!

More blue ice. Beautiful!

It didn't pile up on the north end as much. But there is still alot of ice.

Then we came home to a firey sky. We have had such cloudy days lately that it has been impossible to see a nice sunset. It has been a long time since I have seen such a glowing sky.
I hope everyone has a great, happy and healthy New Year!
 Hugs, Teresa


  1. Wow! Cool photos. What a fun adventure.
    Where is Calumet Park?
    And oh do I ever agree about the SUN. It is a joy when it comes out. :-)
    Happy New Year

  2. Thank you. It was fun. Calumet Park is on the east side of Lake Winnebago. You kind of have to go arounf High Cliff Park to get there. Hyw to 55 south (kaukana-through), Go through 3 (I think 3 roundabouts), go through Sherwood. Go to Cty EE and you will see a sign for the park. You will actually see the sign on 55. You might want to google this to make sure I have the directions right. Happy New Year to you and your family.

  3. Wow, wow and wow. Here in the sweaty season I can't tell you how beautiful it was to see these images. And the sky was amazing too. Megathanks. And a very happy New Year to you and yours.

    1. I bet you would like to sit by these ice "cubes". I will have to remember these when we are sweating this summer. Plus the -35 windchills we are having this week! BRRR. Hugs, Teresa

  4. Such a beautiful sight. Happy New Year Teresa.

    1. Hi Meredith. It is beautiful to see! It can be distructive, but in the right place, beautiful! I hope you have a New Year full of health blessings and joy.
