At sunrise on Friday morning, before we could get up to build a fire and make breakfast, Steve and I were awakened by a strange and unfamiliar sound. A soprano hummmmmmmmmmm filled the forest. The sound was coming from everywhere and nowhere at the same time. When the sun came up the early morning mist over the lake began to dissipate but, unlike every other day, a black swirling fog remained in the air at the far end of the lake. The fog grew as we watched and, like something alive, it rolled over itself in waves as it rose, higher and higher. The black fog continued to turn over and over on itself as it slowly flowed over the surface of the lake in our direction.
There once was a story about two little girls. Daddy killed Mommy, and made the two little girls stay quiet. They were sick and tired of Daddys abusive behavior so, one night, they snuck out. The wind roared like a lion in the night, and the trees rustling sounded like screams of innocent people being killed.
Lake Erie is thriving biologically but not in the way one might think. It’s poisoned with toxic algal blooms that grow in the phosphorus-concentrated waters millions of Canadians and Americas alike depend on for drinking water. Unfortunately, this is also not the first time this has happened to the Great, not-so-great Lake.
Located approximately ten miles west of Nacogdoches, Texas, Lake Nacogdoches is continuing to provide beautiful real estate for Texans and Texas newcomers alike. Covering over two thousand acres, Lake Nacogdoches is known for its beautiful lakefront properties, as well as well as lakefront outdoor activities. In purchasing on or near the lake, there is much to see and do in the area, as well as in surrounding areas.
This summer one scientific thing I did was use a water mat on Lake Winnipesaukee. A water mat is a giant raft that floats on the surface of the water. It's constructed from the same styrofoam type material that a pool noodle is made out of. It is extremely versatile and can be used in many different ways. The way that I enjoyed using it the most was to jump from our pontoon boat onto the mat. I would make my way to the edge of the boat, steady myself, and leap, landing directly on top of the green float. The impact of the jump made my feet feel sore for a few seconds. When I was ready, I would hurdle myself off the mat and climb back onto the boat. While this activity does require a lot of skill, it requires a lot of science as well.
Set high in the Adirondack Mountains range, Lake Placid, a sizeable freshwater lake, lends its name to the village which lies on its shores. Ripe with history, Lake Placid has flourished as an Olympic Village since its settlement in the nineteenth century. Over the course of these last two-hundred years, residents have built and rebuilt Lake Placid Homes which have experienced history in the making firsthand.
The city of Lake Stevens is centered off of a 9-square mile lake located near the coast of Washington. Though we are a small city of only around 30,000 people, those who live here enjoy it. Ever since 1880, we have had beautiful scenery and property. Lake Stevens is not only a gorgeous city, it is a functional, safe, and enjoyable city for all of our citizens.
In the United States, the political system is dominated by two parties, democrats and republicans. These organizations promote an idea and policy to win electrons.

Chirp! Splash! Tweet! How was I supposed to sleep with all the different noises that nature produces? Spending time in the wild was not something I thought possible. One of my mom’s friend told us to go camping with them at Apex, North Carolina and visit Jordan Lake. Jordan Lake is known for their recreational events which include: boating, fishing, camping, hiking and much more.
Volcanoes are some of the most powerful natural forces known to man. Volcanoes usually form at divergent and convergent boundaries. Sometimes they form in the middle of plates where magma fights through the crust. By understanding volcanoes, scientists get a window to the inside of the Earth. They can also study volcanoes to perhaps get closer to predicting eruptions in the future. One of Earth’s volcanoes is Clear Lake. Clear Lake has unique characteristics such as its location, how it forms, and how it erupts. It had erupted in the past with the potential to erupt again.
We'll go through this from west to east, that is, specifically, Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario.
Buffalo is one of the biggest places for poisoning people with lead. Lead has mostly come from paint and air pollution. Air pollution comes from oar and metals processing and planes operated on metal fuel. Water pollution comes from factories on the coast of Lake Erie and the Niagara River. Scientists say that pollution in the lake is creating lead, and then lake water is being mixed into the paint formula causing lead levels to rise. Why it is hard to stop lead poisoning is because there has been 1.8 to 4 billion untreated sewage every year in the Niagara River and 600 million gallons of sewage overflows in the Niagara River.
Let me tell you about the time I got pulled over trying to retrieve a bouncy ball.
My article was titled, “Bolivia’s Second-Largest Lake Has Dried Up and May Not Replenish.” It talks about Bolivia's second largest lake, Lake Poopo. Bolivia is part of Latin America, so some may think that what happens there might not matter to us, but this is not true. This lake has recently dried up causing many of the locals around the area to lose their livelihoods, forcing them to leave the comfort of their homes. This event has happened to this lake before only temporarily, but it is predicted that the phenomena may be permanent this time. While this occurrence causes Bolivia many problems and concerns, it also causes some concern for the rest of the world. There are many possible causes as to why this happened, but nobody can seem to
Imagine you are at the lake. You have a great day swimming and fishing. However, this could one day change. Sure, the lake will still be there, but it might become polluted by people carelessly leaving out trash or not cleaning up after a dog.
