Cold Shoulder

Ice in Minnesota from Lake Superior. Taken by the EPA photographer Jeff Gunderson as part of official duties so, no copyright. Nice photo, Jeff!

I went to lake Michigan today - not Superior. The ice is breaking-up but extends out as far as you can see. The breeze? Pretty much like wind off a giant frozen lake. Yep, just what you'd expect.

It is a fantastic image in my head. I'm not quite sure what to do with it.

Would I leave a body on the ice? Would I have a victim chased onto the breaking ice to then meet a demise in the water?

I'm just not sure what to do with it. I can see the fractured slabs being dynamically unstable. The weight of a person could send them flipping.

I've got to think about it.

My thoughts are somewhat frozen.

Maybe spring will help.
