People hoping to see the Apostle Islands Ice Caves this season had a very short window. Unseasonably warm temperatures and forecasted strong winds for Monday night have prompted park officials to close the caves for the season.
Many news outlets reported over the weekend and through the day Monday about how Lake Superior was approaching almost full ice coverage for a second year in a row. Things certainly have changed a lot in a day.
After news came out of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in mid-January that wind had torn apart the developing ice along the shoreline, the likelihood of visitors being able to access the natural wonder for a second year in a row seemed dashed. Following cold conditions over the past month, things are looking up once again for people looking to visit the ice caves.
As hundreds of brave people prepare to jump into the icy water of Lake Superior this weekend for the annual Polar Plunge event in Canal Park, one can't help but wonder what the weather will hold in store for plungers and spectators.
It never fails, with modern technology many people hunker down after inclement weather and video tape people struggling to get around in their cars. And, in Duluth add the hills, plus snow and you have your basic nightmare.
