"Since record keeping began in the sixties, we've never encountered anything like this before," ice breaker Ulf Gulldne told the local newspaper Örnsköldsviks Allehanda.
On March 29th, 176,000 square kilometers of the Baltic Sea was covered in ice, a record for the time of year. On a map, it means about half of the central and northern parts are frozen over. Far north, the ice is both thick and difficult to break through.
The date on which the ice reaches its maximum spread usually falls much earlier in the year. The previously latest date record was March 25th, 2008. That year, only 49,000 square kilometeres of the Baltic was covered in ice, which was the smallest maximum spread of ice in the previous 100 years.
"I've never seen this much ice this late in the season," said Karl Herlin, captain of the icebreaker Atle, currently working off the coast of Luleå in northern Sweden.

That “global warming” is destroying the globe.
LOL The global warming bunch just can’t catch a break. Can’t wait to hear them explain this.
Here we go again: Spring snowstorm blankets .. The National Weather Service has extended winter weather advisories for Anchorage and the Matanuska Valley.
Heavy snow forecast from the Kenai Peninsula to ...
Global Varming is dying a fast death. Even “Get Smart” is getting it.
All you libs that follow the Goracle may want to sue his ass for breeding stupidity in the classroom.
In ten years we may be begging for some global warming.
“Our global warming predictions?” “Missed it by ‘that much’”.
The good news is we have had 6 days of increasing solar activity levels. Whoo Hoo. So we may be seeing the second and final peaking of this depressed solar maximum period. One must expect a violent spring on plant ape. The last gasp of short term energy from the sun infusing into a massive greater then decade long cooling trend.
It's still caused by "evil" mankind!!
Hi, Lancey. I’ve been saying for years that this so-called obesity pandemic is nature’s way of preparing us for a new mini ice age. Yhe more I see, the more I believe it.
Wow - that Global Warming again, huh?
I can’t believe the snark. A freezing planet is most certainly an effect of global warming. Every simulation predicted this.
Just Great....we are sailing up there in 3 weeks!!!
I was in UP recently
Nice snow pack interior
And Gitchigumee and Huron were frozen over
Snow this week and more coming
Global warming my butt
They already have. One of many examples here.
Weather is not climate!! As we all know as accepted fact, the climate over the past 20 years is warming, I mean cooling, no, wait, ummm, ummm, I mean..... changing!!! Yeah, that’s the ticket.
Snow in Alaska this time of year is not surprising.
6” of snow last week in Blacksburg, VA - very strange.
i’ve had many debates with stupid liberals/democrats who asssured me the ice caps are melting ,seas are rising and that I’m destroying the planet by driving my car. I’ve told them what will you when it gets colder in a few years? and they said it won’t .
