Lake Tracks

This photo was shot two weeks ago on a day with above freezing temperatures. The lakes are now still covered with ice, but the ice is no longer safe for vehicles. It might not have been safe when the picture was taken. I know I was not about to drive out there.

This photo was taken on April 14th, 2018. Unusually cold and stormy weather may well be a consequence of global warming. The jet stream normally moving from west to east is disturbed and weaken by warming conditions, so those of us on the northern prairie get Arctic air and blizzards. Our temperatures have been 30 to 40 degrees below normal for this time of year, and I had to remove three feet of snow from the driveway. Last year was the hottest year on record, eclipsing the previous hottest, the year before. This summer's heat may also be extreme.

Crane Mural, Kearny, Nebraska

Every spring from March to April about 600,000 Sandhill Cranes stop along the Platt River near Kearney. They feed for several weeks in local harvested corn fields to gain energy to make the rest of their migration to Alaska and Siberia.
