As they watched waters rise, Bo and Mindy Ellis paid for a new stone revetment to prevent their home on the south side of Whitefish Bay Creek in Door County, Wis., from getting washed into Lake Michigan. The couple waited months for a professional to do the work as other northeast Wisconsinites flooded contractors with calls amid erosion worries. Photo taken May 12, 2020.
