Tonight’s full moon is known as the snow moon, because it comes in February, a month typically snowy and cold. When I was standing on the fast ice shelf tonight watching for the first glow of the rising red moon, with temperatures above freezing it felt like the end of March instead of February. To my right, Lake Superior gently rocked ice shards up and down on its ankle-high waves. To my left, the cabins of Hollow Rock Resort sat dark and vacant. And then I saw the first third of the moon appear out of the haze-covered horizon just to the right of Hollow Rock. The snow moon rises over Lake Superior and Hollow Rock. Grand Portage, Minnesota.
