The 30 foot tall outer light of the St. Joseph, Michigan after a severe winter storm. Waves on Lake Michigan were said to be over 20 feet high, which pounded the lighthouse and covered it in ice feet thick in places. Workers were just finishing up a paint job when the storm hit. The scaffold was demolished and is also covered in a thick layer of ice.
Driving winds from the North along with splashing waves created a curved wall of ice resembling dinosaur teeth hanging from the catwalk leading to the outer light of the St. Joseph, Michigan lighthouse. The catwalk deck is about ten feet above the pier, the ice teeth hang down to the pier in some place
