CHRISTMAS, FRANKFORT—For the first time I have now seen with my very own eyes what some have described to me in the past. Sunday and Monday I walked the beachfront of Frankfort heading north. Much further away from the breakwall I found the beach littered with ice balls; not only lined up on the beach, but floating and bobbing along the shoreline. Thousands of them everywhere. The largest was at least two and a half feet in diameter and quite weighty, I’m sure. They were larger Monday than Sunday. They rolled in the waves brushing against each other, rounding themselves as they rolled. I don’t know if this happens every year or if certain parameters have to happen—but it was the first time I’ve seen this amazing sight.
