These great photos were sent in by a reader from Oshkosh, WI who wanted to showcase the huge ice shoves that are along the shore line of Lake Winnebago. Lake Winnebago is Wisconsin’s largest lake, not deepest, and stretches across the Fox Valley in the Mid- Eastern part of the state. After a windy weekend and a lot of ice break up, the ice was pushed against the shore in Oshkosh and piled up there.
