Sea Smoke 001
An artic blast has set in and dropped the temperatures to well below zero. If you can fight the urge to stay indoors next to the fireplace, you can witness one of Lake Superior’s most intriguing events—sea smoke.
Sea smoke forms when colder air mixes with the warmer air producing fog. We have had sea smoke for about four days in a row. Off shore winds cause the smoke to billow up over the lake looking like an approaching storm. At sunrise it can produce some pretty impressive views.
