Frigid Morning Creates Steamy Lake Champlain

It was 11 below in Burlington, Vermont this morning. Up until now, it's generally been a warm winter, so the lake has little ice on it.

The relatively warm waters, with no ice covering it, clashed with the cold air to create cool steam clouds. The steam froze on shoreline trees, creating some pretty rime ice. I was out there, briefly, despite the cold, and got this brief, otherworldly sort of video of the lake on a cold Vermont morning.

  1. Hi Matt,

    AWESOME clip! I am an intern at ECHO in Burlington working on the Voices for the lake exhibit. I was hoping you would share this video (and maybe some of your other Lake content clips & photos) on our website at
