Lighthouse and Gulls
Only the gulls were around last Saturday in Michigan City's Washington Park Beach; though it still seems odd to have to wear a winter coat. 30 degrees and gusty winds kept most people far away from the shore. It won't be long before the shelf ice begins to form, and walking along the beach will become dangerous.
No snow in sight in the photo above, even though 16 inches of lake-effect snow fell over parts of Indiana and Michigan last week. Along the lake there was only a trace, a mile into Michigan City a measurable amount was seen, and in LaPorte, about 8 inches was still on the ground.
