Haaa I did see that but when them winter waves r pumpin the coppers must let us rock on. It's a steady stream of folks sunup to sundown so bound to stir it up. Da winter has a helluva nice powerful sometimes barreling wave on the south end and hard to resist cops or cold.

I drove by Waukegan beach yesterday and it was all iced up. About 1 mile of ice pieces floating. When the wind blows offshore would not be surprised it it all floats away though.

a report from your eye in the sky.....

We circled out over the lake yesterday and I saw lots of "pack ice".... islands of slush and chunks of ice. I suspect when the wind blows in or out so will the ice. 3 days of NE winds would deposit all of it on-shore here on the Illinois side.
