  1. That is a cool video. Shadows of the skyline creeping across the lake almost as interesting as the ice flow breaking away.

  2. What is the actual duration of that breakaway?

    I’m just trying to gauge if I were high up in a downtown build, could I watch that happen while I drank my cup of coffee. Or would it be so long and subtle that I’d see it together in the morning and at the end of the workday wonder when it floated away.

  3. At some point it’s going to run into the shore on the other side and end up in a pig pile in Muskegon or something

  4. Sometimes the ice gets pushed towards the shore and it buckles and folds over itself. When I was a kid I used to play along the shore and it would be full of thick plates of ice sticking up at weird angles like how a fault line creates mountains.

  5. I actually flew over that. I was flying home from Colorado and we flew right over downtown Chicago, and we saw the ice sheet drifting out in the middle of the lake. Pretty darn cool.

  6. Does someone have the date and time of this?

    I’d like to confirm that this is the corresponding satellite image from ESA Sentinel-2

  7. “Dumb ice”

    “Shut up, dumb LAND”

    “People can’t even live on you”

    “Oh Huron pal, people can’t live on me cuz I can live wherever I want, maybe Michigan won’t be such a douche”

  8. Could anyone familiar with the geography help me figure out which parts of the city we’re seeing here?

    That looks like Navy Pier way in the background, and maybe Soldier Field in the middle of the frame, where the highway curves out? But that can’t be right, because I don’t think there are any buildings as tall as our camera that far south.

    Your help is very much appreciated by this Michigander with a giant crush on Chicago.

  9. I live on the lake and was wondering what happened. One day the horizon was just white and the next the lake was back.
