And what a throwback it is! Last year around this time, a good portion of the country experienced a “Polar Vortex.” Temperatures were well below the norm, and the landscape here in Chicago definitely changed for a short period of time.
Case in point: I took the above photo near Lake Michigan at the height of the ‘vortex.’ What an interesting sight it was! All I could think of when I saw this icy, nature-made sculpture was how much it looked like teeth! More appropriately, it looked like a tooth extraction from a polar monster!
I recall being one of the only people walking along Lake Michigan that day. To me, the temperatures were something I was very used to. Manitoba winters are typically filled with temperatures rivaling a polar vortex; or, as some hearty Manitobans would say, “It’s just winter.”
Believe it or not, that is the tooth! No, I meant to say, “truth”; yes, that’s what I meant to say!
