Lake Winnebago, near Neenah and Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin

"With a sudden fury, the mighty waters of Lake Winnebago shed their winter-long cradle of ice this week in a dance with Mother Nature that lasted for several days."
"A week-long series of storms, each bringing winds in a different direction, ripped at the surface of the lake, shattering the weakening ice and driving it ashore in massive piles that reached more than 20 feet high in places."
