Giant ice balls wash ashore on Lake Michigan……


Photographer Ken Scott referred to the bizarre floating objects he discovered washing against the shore of Lake Michigan recently as “winter wonders,” and that they may be.

But in weather terminology, they’re merely called ice balls, which sometimes grow to become ice boulders, which resemble giant floating rocks.

Here is the poem for the Fenn Treasure that was hidden…..


Begin it where warm waters halt
And take it in the canyon down,
Not far, but too far to walk.
Put in below the home of Brown.

From there it’s no place for the meek,
The end is ever drawing nigh;
There’ll be no paddle up your creek,
Just heavy loads and water high.

If you’ve been wise and found the blaze,
Look quickly down, your quest to cease,
But tarry scant with marvel gaze,
Just take the chest and go in peace.

So why is it that I must go
And leave my trove for all to seek?
The answers I already know,
I’ve done it tired and now I’m weak.

So hear me all and listen good,
Your effort will be worth the cold.
If you are brave and in the wood
I give you title to the gold.

Want to find his hidden treasure worth millions?…Hidden 3 years ago…


th
===============================================================================
Forrest Fenn, 82, believes too many Americans spend their free time watching TV or playing video games. He hopes the bounty he hid — a chest filled with millions of dollars in gold coins, diamonds and emeralds, among other gems — will prompt some to explore the outdoors. “Get your kids out in the countryside, take them fishing and get them away from their little hand-held machines,” he told TODAY.

Fenn hid the chest in a secret spot three years ago with two goals in mind: Getting people to fall in love with America’s scenic trails and passing on what he calls the “thrill of the chase,” something he has experienced over more than seven decades of hunting for rare objects.
“The Thrill of the Chase” is also the title of Fenn’s self-published autobiography, which contains an unusual map to the treasure, a poem with 9 clues in it. “Begin it where warm waters halt, and take it in the canyon down, not far, but too far to walk,”

The chest, weighing in at over 40 pounds, constructed in the 13th Century, contains items Fenn has accumulated over more than seven decades.

Arctic front brings heavy snow to Northern N.M…..


ALBUQUERQUE — Northern and central parts of New Mexico have been struck by an arctic front, bringing in heavy snow and causing road closures.

The Department of Transportation reported heavy snow around Chama and Tierra Amarilla on Sunday. Officials say heavy snow along Interstate 25 from Glorieta Pass to the Colorado border also forced some motorists off the road. Santa Fe officials reported multiple accidents on Interstate 25 and that part of the interstate was closed due to bad weather.

The National Weather Service reports a winter storm warning remains in effect for parts of New Mexico until early Monday.
