I have lived in Northwestern Ontario all my life, and think I am very lucky! In addition to fresh air and changing seasons, there is the opportunity to attempt to catch the beautiful scenery on camera. I say 'attempt', because a picture is not worth a thousand words... the reality can take your breath away. I have always been a shutterbug, however owning a digital camera and discovering Wunderground has motivated me even more. Create your own visitor map!

Caption: With Lake Superior 96% frozen this winter, the US Coast Guard Cutter Alder tackles the ice in the Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada harbour. Three US Coast Guard icebreakers are tackling ice 2 - 3 feet thick, while Canadian Coast Guard ice breakers tackle the far eastern entrance to this Great Lake. Out in the middle of the lake they are reporting ice and ice ridges 6 to 8 feet thick. Lake Superior rarely freezes like this ... bringing shipping to a halt as icebreakers are needed to escort ships.
