Just a quick follow up to this post, showing the true size of the icefall on the New York side of Lake Champlain. This photo was taken on Feb. 2, 2004, around noon.

The only way to get to this spot in the winter of 2007 would be in a boat. There has been lots of discussion of 'climate' versus 'weather' lately, but I think something is going on, especially when one starts reading about some of the rapid changes taking place in the Artic. In some ways, if nature kicks our collective ass, I think we (collectively) deserve it, actions -- mass consumption, car dependency, etc. -- have consequences.
