Thick Ice Pancakes Form on Lake Michigan

Ice pancakes made for stunning sight at a lake pier in Saint Joseph, Michigan, amid sub-freezing temperatures on January 26.

Ice pancakes are created when chunks of forming ice knock together. A lip forms as water splashes on the freezing ice plate. This footage by Nathan Voytovick captured the phenomenon. Credit: Nathan Voytovick via Storyful
