Monday’s Mystery: The Disappearance of Lake Michigan

Where on earth has Lake Michigan gone? This morning I was greeted by a scene that looked as if the lake had disappeared!

This isn’t a common occurrence, as it doesn’t happen that often that the lake is covered with a thin layer of ice. Even in cold weather the water is usually on the move.

I noticed something quite interesting; can you see (where the sun is peeking through the clouds) a cloud formation that looks similar to a Viking ship? Please let me know if you can see it, or if there is something else you see instead.

Did a Viking ship in the sky steal Lake Michigan? Or is COVID playing havoc with my (attempted) sense of humor?

I hope you have a lovely, humor-filled kind of day!

    It’s the bow of the ship! Maybe the many shipwrecks in Lake Michigan are up to something? ❤️

    I see the viking ship. Pick me pick me for the door prize. I also see an elephant throwing his head back with his large trunk in the air. Now I win for the door prize. The disappearance of the lake is no mystery. It picked up a microphone and started recording. It gave the lake goosebumps and the lake gave the demo a ride to the next radio station.Mystery solved.

        Yes ir is a great beginning of the story. The ending is when this little girl with blonde hair belts a tune in the microphone lol and then the radio station said yes. After all that Lake michigan returned. And that is one ending of the story

    Yes, it is definitely a Viking ship and it almost certainly is stealing the lake.

    I see the whole ship… and then… an elephant appeared! 🙂 It’s as if your clouds are moving! How beautiful. There’s a movie, Summerland – where clouds like yours play an important role in the story.

    Oh it is definitely a Viking ship, Cher. I see it. As for Covid, we’ve got to stop giving it more power then it has. Simple. I’ve continue with my life ignoring the hype and the fear and the chaos the world is so intend on focusing on. Nope. Looking at your picture I see adventure and fun. I suggest taking a ride on that Viking ship to see where it takes you. SMIILE!! xo

Let’s focus forward, having fun, and looking to the good things that are coming! Well interestingly, my ancestry is Scottish and Norwegian. Now let’s look for that Viking ship!! Thank you, Amy!!
