Polar vortex came and turned the Lake of Michigan into something else. Lake Michigan now consists of ‘gorgeous’ ice shards that take up the vast majority of the lake.
According to Michigan Live, up to 56% of the lake was covered up in ice shards. Although the lake is an eye-catching sensation filled with shards, the US Coast Guard(s) warned people that it’s not a playground.
“No ice is safe ice especially this time of year, the ice is certainly deteriorating and breaking up.”
