Water expands to freeze, and at Mackinaw City the water in Lake Huron below the surface ice was supercooled. It expanded to break through the surface ice and froze into this incredible wave.

This wave phenomena occurs in Antarctica, but in Michigan? Yes, it's been quite a winter .. the coldest in many decades.

This is one of the pictures a friend sent of the ice wave on Lake Huron.
