Good cover for the…


creature from the Long Lake Lagoon. Well, I don’t think we have a lagoon, even if we do have a creature. My dictionary says a lagoon is a stretch of salt water separated by a low sandbank or coral reef or a small freshwater lake near a larger lake or river. But can’t you just imagine something creepy emerging from this low-lying, moving bank of fog?

This is Tuesday, December 15, around 10:00 in the morning. The lake is frozen over with what seems to be a thin layer of mushy ice. It’s still so thin you can clearly see the color changes along the drop-offs.
