January is typically pretty cold, so ice forms on Superiorís rocks and shores. Todayís archive photos illustrate that well, beginning with one from 2002, taken by Ben Kilpela on the shores of the Big Lake near Danís Point, west of Copper Harbor. Check out the waves behind that ice covered rock.

In 2013, Joe Kirkish was on Superiorís shoreline at Great Sand Bay and found the ice formed along the shoreline, but the beach still sandy looking, yet frozen. Interesting how that shoreline has changed from sandy to rocks in recent years.

Our video feature today was filmed by Jason Asselin in 2014, as ice was forming over rushing water at Fumee Falls in Quinessec, MI.

On the entire Mississippi River system above St. Louis, 19 million acres of wetlands--the only flood control that has ever really worked--were engineered to oblivion.

Pat & Glenda (Gormfrog), not to mention the
deliberately constructed 'flooding areas' which were
built to mimic wetlands on the lower Mississippi.
But then people built homes in those areas and we
upset when they diverted the flood waters into them.
Those flood waters have to go somewhere and the more
you block natural areas the worse it will be
somewhere else.
