A reason to cry...

Lake Superior froze over this year – which explains why we haven’t had any lake-effect snow. Anywho, last time I remember it freezing over was many years ago, and it was awesome. There were huge icy “mountains” waaaaaay out from the actual shoreline, and the ice was so thick, you could walk out to them and climb them. Because of this, I’ve been wanting to go out and see how it looked this year.

So, this morning I woke up fairly early (for somebody who works afternoon shift), and Johnny & I drove out to Little Girl’s Point. It sounded awesome with the huge sheets of ice grinding across each other and moving and such, but was definately not as cool to look at as it was that one year. Despite the lack of the icy mountains, some things were still photo-worthy. So I get out my camera, and walk down to the icy beach.

I go to turn my camera on, and what happens? Nothing. Abso-bloody-lutely nothing. My batteries were dead – I’d grabbed the wrong ones out of the drawer – stupid rechargeables, they look the same, dead or alive!!! Johnny takes his out of his camera (he’s not too big into photography anyhow) and hands them to me. I switch them out, and flick the switch on my camera. Nothing. again. He had done the same thing.

So we drove all the way out to the Big Lake just to listen to some ice crackle, and to find out that we need to recharge our batteries.

It was enough to make me cry…almost.
