Lake Ontario is the only major holdout, and the forecast there is for extreme cold during the next two weeks.

Well the good news is it kills off the “fetch” and thus the lake effect snow, LOL.

Lake Ontario is the second deepest lake, and it benefits from the warmth from the upstream lakes. It is also further south, and far enough east to have large nor’easters break up the ice on occasion.

thanks. visited toronto recently, apparently in the 1800’s there were times you could cross the lake to the USA.

also, i was surprised to read that the great lakes are only 10,000 years old, that makes them pretty recent

Lake Ontario is very deep, I think second only to Lake Superior and Lake Erie is the shallowest. Erie freezes over almost every winter.

Depth is part of it. Superior is deeper but Ontario is further south. Erie is furthest south but is shallowest.

Lake Huron rolls, Superior sings

In the rooms of her ice-water mansion

Old Michigan steams like a young man's dreams

The islands and bays are for sportsmen

And farther below, Lake Ontario

Takes in what Lake Erie can send her

And the iron boats go as the mariners all know

With the gales of November remembered

It truly is beautiful in the winter when the trees all turn white from the mist and the lower river freezes over. They used to have people walking around on the river back in the old days but it is verboten nowadays. Good thing too. Very dangerous as the ice can move and crack at any time.

Global Warming guru Algore – wearing his ever present Nobel medal – is seen here en-route to an important “scientific” conference in Nassau hosted by the UN/IPCC where he was to be the keynote speaker.

Topics on the agenda were to have included “Finding a Good Bail Bondsman,” “Not ALL Criminal Lawyers Are Sharks,” “Changing Careers for Dummies,” “You Want Fries With That?,” “How To Encrypt Emails,” “The Best Prison Jobs,” “Getting Along With Your Cellmate” and “Getting Used to Sleeping On Your Back.”

A sudden – and unfortunate – blast of what the “scientist” in charge of the conference termed “global warming” caused the meeting to be rescheduled until Algore can be thawed some time next Spring – assuming there will BE one.

Our reporter has learned that the influential conservative web site Free Republic has launched a contribution drive to rent a freezer locker in which to keep Gore for the 10 to 15 years estimated it will take for the so-called “mainstream media” to begin covering the Climategate story.

No..because only one in five great lakes still believe in global warming

Lake Ontario is the lone one that still believes the man made global warming delusion

Although Lake Ontario is the smallest of the lakes in surface area, it’s relative volume is very high:

Lake Surface Area Volume

Lake Erie 25,667 km2 (9,910 sq mi) 545 km3 (131 cu mi)

Lake Superior 82,100 km2 (31,700 sq mi) 11,600 km3 (2,800 cu mi)

Lake Ontario 18,960 km2 (7,320 sq mi) 1,710 km3 (410 cu mi)

Lake Huron 59,600 km2 (23,000 sq mi) 3,540 km3 (850 cu mi)

Lake Michigan 58,000 km2 (22,000 sq mi) 4,920 km3 (1,180 cu mi)

Lake Superior 82,100 km2 (31,700 sq mi) 11,600 km3 (2,800 cu mi)

From Al Gore: this is a sign that Global Warming is terrorizing the rust belt! God forbid those 17 great lakes ever melt, the water will flow to the east coast and flood Washington DC and New York! We need to start preparing by filling 6 Trillion Bags of sea sand and line them up all the way from Boston to Florida ASAP !!!

“i wonder what makes lake ontario unique?”
Although Lake Ontario is not the largest of the great lakes in area, it is very, very deep and it takes longer to freeze this large amount of deep water.

The Great Lakes were formed by glaciers. I wonder if I will ever see the lakes have ice on them at the end of summer?

Average depths, from your numbers:

Lake Erie 70

Lake Superior 466

Lake Ontario 296

Lake Huron 195

Lake Michigan 283

Superior is deeper, but also further inland.

Last October, Antarctica set an all-time record for HIGHEST ever sea ice extents (area) at 19.5 million square kilometers at maximum.

This spring, Antarctica sea ice set a second-high highest sea ice minimum extents.

And, Antarctic sea ice extents has been steadily increasing ever May 2011 through ALL seasons of the year: If this rate of increase continues - which is admittedly uncertain - the Cape Horn passage will be blocked by Antarctic sea ice within 8-10 years!

You people have it all wrong. Don’t you know that global warming “caused” the Great Lakes to freeze over? Just listen to the experts.
