A tale of Two Great Lakes

  • June 9, 2013 /

I stood on the shore of two great lakes in the last couple of weeks. On memorial weekend I took my family to the North Shore of Lake Superior, and a week later I was standing on the shore of Lake Victoria, which is on the border of Uganda. You couldn’t see the other side of either lake, and they both appeared as expansive as an ocean. But that’s where the similarity ended.

The climate by Lake Superior was very cold – to the point of wearing heavy winter jackets, scarves, hats, and gloves, even though we could take off our jackets a mile inland where the forests blocked the cold lake wind. The climate by Lake Victoria was always pleasant, between 75 – 85 degrees F, as it is right by the equator.

The shore by Lake Superior was extremely rocky, from pebbles to rocks to bolders to rocky cliffs. There really isn’t sand. The shore by Lake Victoria was very soft sand.

The trees by Lake Superior are pine trees and birch bark trees (white trunks), while the trees by Lake Victoria are palm trees, Avocado trees, and other tropical plants.

The water of Lake Superior is crisp, cold, and clean. You can bathe in it if you want to impress your friends that you can stand the cold. I’ve waded in it before, and nearly froze my toes. The water of Lake Victoria is nicely warm, I imagine, but no one can swim, bathe, or wade in it, or even let a drop of it touch them in any way, as it is filled with parasites that cause bad diseases.

When you are evaluating a new program, mastermind, support team, or software for your business, be sure to research the differences between them, as many of them may seem similar on the surface, but in reality have many vast differences.
