Roger Hanson a.k.a. Ice Man was attempting to break the world record for the largest freestanding ice wall. He started the “Lake Superior Project” late last fall on Barkers Island in Superior, Wisconsin. The project was partially funded by the Superior Tourism Development Fund.


The project has had its problems this winter. Things were going well when the tower collapsed during a warm spell in February. Ironically Hanson was talking with a reporter from the New Your Times when it collapsed.


He is using a computer program to apply just the right amount of water to gradually build the ice wall. I thought maybe with the warm weather we had this past week that it would fall down again but apparently it hasn’t. The fire department was trying to bring it down for safety reasons.
