Wind, Water, and Freezing Temps

Postby StlSluggers » Wed Feb 16, 2005 2:42 pm

It is my understanding that this is Switzerland (Lake Geneva) about one month ago. Don't be fooled by some of the images. This was not the result of an ice storm per se. It was caused by high waves and spray in subfreezing temperatures. The ice only goes about 50 feet inland as you can see in the last picture.

There are additional pictures linked at the bottom of the post.

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
