This was taken on Green Lake Wisconsin at the end of the season last year in 2011. It was a raging blizzard with white out conditions when the photo was taken, the blur was the snow blowing horizontally at about 25. What nobody sees is the fifty or so ice shanties lurking in the background. The refresher on an ice shanty is that they are a 2000# plus cube with a bunch of old guys drinking in them, picture the movie Grumpy Old Men. If you hit one it would total the shack, the people and the boat. – Thanks to Anarchist John.
