Recent day trip was not entirely satisfying. But at least I got out and about a bit.
Here is the source of my greatest disappointment. I had gotten word of an “atmospheric inversion,” a phenomenon where the air immediately above the surface of a body of water acts as a magnifying glass, making faraway objects appear much closer than they actually are. In this case, you could make out the Canadian side of Lake Erie, Cedar Point and other parts along the Lake that normally are not visible from Lorain or Sheffield Lake. For a better look, click here. Colleague Bruce Bishop got a much better shot of it the day before.
