|The day after: Lake Effect Snow!|
The sky was a brilliant blue when we arrived from the ferry. The winds picked up in the afternoon, and a storm was on the way.
The winds were picking up as we finished our trip. They pick up moisture from the Great Lakes (Lake Effect Snow), which are not yet frozen over. Of course, what goes up, must come down.
Our car iced over in the water splashing (video is here). The four of us laughed so hard. It was a wonderful trip!

Wolfe Island, located directly opposite the City of Kingston, forms a natural boundary between Canadian and United States shores, at the entrance to the St. Lawrence River. The island is some twenty miles in length and ranges from one to seven miles in breadth; a fertile Island of over 30,000 acres in area. It is the largest of the famed “Thousand Islands”. It divides the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario and has the Canal Channel on the south. It might well be called the gateway to the Seaway.
