What no one tells you is that the lake sings in winter. It makes a peculiar thrumming, like the sound effects of a space film, and it is the sound of the ice in the lake cracking and shifting. Sometimes you can feel the ground shake. It is strange and beautiful, as if the whole lake were a musical instrument, and it makes you know that life is mysterious and magnificent, and beyond our power to understand.
