They're Back!

Ice boulders have been spotted again on the shores of Lake Michigan in Glen Arbor.

The ice balls form in water that is just below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, and start out as small chunks of ice.

The chunks form layer by layer, as the waves shape them into spheres, seen here in the video are formed. Locals refer to them as "ice balls" or "ice boulders" as they wash up on the Lake Michigan shore.
