True hibernators’ body temps drop, their heart beat slows, and they don’t ‘wake up’ when prodded or exposed to loud noises. Black bears, chipmunks, snakes, frogs, toads and some turtles hibernate. Other mammals go into torpor, a state of deep, temporary sleep from which they wake to eat, drink, release waste.
Learn more about bear hibernation.

With an average temp of 42°, Lake Superior acts like a hot water bottle emanating a little warmth up the hillsides. This occurs November through April when daily highs air temps drop below 40°. The warmth sits in the bowl created by the hills. Once you pass the hilltop, temps can drop by 15°.
When very cold winter air meets the relatively warm lake water, fog is created. This fog hovers over the surface and is known as sea smoke. You will most often see sea smoke in January when it is really cold.
