Ice with that?

I have been so busy, that haven't had time to post my award blog and my nominations,
I promise to later today after work!

For now something I got in an email from a friend! 
I know I say it a lot but this one is really good, not funny, but nature and beauty!
And sorry but educational!
 LOL!

Here it is complete, as I received it (only changed lettering to black)

 Amazing striped icebergs 

Icebergs in  Lake Winnipeg   sometimes have stripes, formed by layers of snow that react to different conditions.

Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet fills up with melt water and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form.

When an iceberg falls into the lake, a layer of water can freeze to the underside. If this is rich in algae, it can form a green stripe.

Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment, picked up when the ice sheet grinds downhill towards the lake. 



Frozen Wave Pics - Nature is amazing!

The water froze the instant the wave broke through the
ice.  That's what it is like in  Lake Winnipeg where it is the
coldest weather in decades.  Water freezes the instant
it comes in contact with the air.  The temperature of the
water is already some degrees below freezing.  

Just look at how the wave froze in mid-air!!! 

 






Having the Internet means that we get to see something that we never imagined!  Pass it on for others to enjoy!

Don't you just love that last line!!!!
I did and I am passing it on!!!
