Who knew?

 The Many Dangers of Lake Superior | CrimeReads. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

There are so many fascinating things about Lake Superior that fuel the imagination. Vicious storms can rise up suddenly and sink a ship or a pleasure boat out for an afternoon sail. In the winter there are ice volcanoes that look like an ordinary hill of snow, but inside is a hardened cone that erupts with a mixture of ice, water, and sleet. I once had my protagonist hiding from the killer in an ice cave, but the ice break starts before she can get out.
The only one of the Great Lakes I know is Lake Michigan. I used to live right next to it in Chicago. What I remember, of course, is the wind.
