Reflecting on memories from the Northwest Sportshow with 2024 show this week in Minnesota

Three decades ago – three! – my dad, uncle, and I were at the Northwest Sportshow. This was a big deal to me because my family had just moved from Detroit Lakes, Minn., where we lived on a lake, to Bloomington, where we did not live on a lake.

The ski plane they study the wolves from uses the frozen lake as a landing strip because there’s nowhere to touch down on the island. But this weirdly warm winter left the Great Lakes nearly devoid of ice. Now, scientists are scrambling to understand how iceless winters could affect the world’s largest freshwater system.
