Spinning Ice Disk Forms on Michigan River


In one of Mother Nature’s winter wonders Michigan’s Cedar River is providing us a stunning visual display. A huge disk of ice spins in a circle as the river’s current flows past. The anomaly is located on a section of the river near Gladwin, Michigan

The phenomenon requires perfect conditions to form. Powered by flowing water, the speed of the river’s current controls the rate of spin. Winter weather up north during January and February is often harsh. However, snow and ice storms create stunning visual effects. Check out the photos of Niagara Falls freezing and some of our state’s more spectacular winter sites.
