Mini Sand Pillars Form on Beach as Arctic Blast Moves Through Region

Mini sand pillars took over the shores of Lake Michigan on Monday, March 18, as freezing temperatures hit the region.

Drone photographer Nathan Voytovick posted this footage to his Nate’s Dronography page, showing the mini sand pillars and the frozen St Joseph North Pier Inner Lighthouse in Saint Joseph, Michigan.

“Just the idea of sand freezing is cool,” Voytovick told Storyful.

The National Weather Service warned of lake effect snow showers and strong wind gusts across the region on Monday, as well as several hard freezes until Thursday. Credit: Nate’s Dronography via Storyful
