Yup.

A friend of mine lives next to Trail Creek. He took these pics from one of the lake effect blasts we got. I think they picked up (in MI City) about the same as I did in South Bend (17-inches). The brunt of that storm hit just North of me in Michigan (think some parts up there got about 3-foot). Fun, fun, fun.

I missed a beautiful pic this morning driving into work (I need to keep my camera with me). We got a fresh three inches of lake effect snow over night and the sunrise was eriely beautiful. Of course the wind chill was minus 30, everything is white including the roads, and there was a almost vapor like quality to the snow in the air (very fine partciles). The sun was a misty-winter hazzy orange ball with a couple of pilars of orange on either side (a fair distance away). Can't explain how the pillars got where they did but it would have made a classic photo. It was an absolutely beautiful morning - I shan't soon forget it).

Are the trout still hitting out there at all?

I'm guessing those were Sun Dogs you saw. They are pretty cool.

Don't know. The rivulets that I wade for stream browns all have a closed season right now (except one). I just havent waded this winter (sad to say). I suppose the steelhead are hitting pretty good in the St. Joe when high water and slush/scum ice aren't messing things up. If conditions are fishable you can usually do well on steelhead.

Sun Dogs? They got a name for what I saw - cool. I'll have to do a little surfing to learn a little more about them. Thanks.
