Info on ice photo from north shore

My father-in-law was recently telling me about a photo he saw in the 1970s(?) that someone took of ice along the north shore during a storm.

When the photographer developed the film, one of the ice/water spray images appeared to be an image of Jesus (sort of like the Jesus in the toast thing from some years ago).

Does anyone know of this photo and/or the photographer? Father-in-law would like to track down a copy of the photo if available somewhere.

Grandma’s Marathon 2014 – The Double

After seeing the post last summer about Eric Strand running the Grandma’s “Double” (3 a.m. from the finish line to the start, then runs the race) I’ve been waiting for Eric’s 2014 installment. Here it is, another excellent video showing a great inside look at the people of the race: the runners, the volunteers and the spectators. Good job, Duluth!

Goodbye, Woodland Jr.

Last chance to visit Woodland Middle School this weekend. Classic junior high 1980s memories of fashion issues and general awkwardness. And lots of “going out with people” started and ended often via notes.
