Ice sculpture

(US Coast Guard / The Associated Press)

This looks pretty cool, doesn't it?

A giant ice sculpture, an abstract form of crystalline water.

Which just happens to be the Cleveland Harbor West Pierhead lighthouse... after a winter storm.

It's completely useless. Seafaring folks were left to their own devices as they couldn't see the light.



  1. Amazing pix! Life is harsh on the Great Lakes sometimes.

  2. It looks like a big cake.

    I spent a few years with the Coast Guard stationed in Cleveland but I was lucky enough to land a cushy desk job, thank God.

  3. Ah that old gal Mother Nature has quite the sense of humor I see. :)

  4. That is amazing! We Just don't get the extremes of weather here (just lots of rain)

  5. Wow! It looks like someone knitted a particularly vile Christmas sweater for the lighthouse.

  6. Amazing what water and cold can do, eh?


So you have something to say about all this, do you?
Well, let's hear it, then!
