If you have lived in the Northland your whole life or are new to the area, we all know how rare it is for the big lake to freeze over, and this year it is close to 100%. But how does the lake look away from the shore on actually on the lake.

I was down on the shoreline in Canal Park in February cheering on the Polar Bear Plungers with the water looking dark, menacing and very cold. But since my view all winter has been from the shoreline I was fascinated by the bravery and shooting skills of this video.

So, sit back and relax while staying warm to see something that is becoming more and more rare as time goes on!
