Ice continued to build this past week on the Great Lakes due to the cold air and temperatures staying below freezing, and Lake Superior's new record shows it.

I know the local river is fighting getting frozen up.
That global warming sure sucks. It causes so many problems. /s
For a better close up look.
This winter has been horrible. I work in transportation logistics, and finding carriers to pick up freight has been a nightmare.
I’m sure algore will be able to attribute this to globull warming.
Related story from this morning.
Grand Traverse Bay and the straits are ice-locked I see.
Lake Michigan looks predominately ice-free so I guess the snow will continue to fall on the western lower peninsula.
I always liked the Lakers. They’re cool!
That’s pretty cool.
Not very often that happens.
(Not the exact terminology, but good enough.)
We're not in the same league as the Great Lakes, but many places around here that usually have ample open water even in cold weather are frozen over this year.
This snow and cold has got to stop! I have Cabin Fever so bad that I looked at the headline and thought, “ Wow. I wonder what the record is? That looks really interesting.”
The dogs have been whispering behind my back and sharpening the carving knives. I caught the little one trying to put sleeping pills in my milk. Oh, I’m awake now. The fleabags won’t take me by surpri
Al Gore and Co. say that Mt Kilimanjaro's glaciers are melting, BECAUSE of gorebull warming.
And great lakes ice build up is also from gorebull warming.
The local paper claimed Superior completely froze in 1996, so if it ain’t completely froze it can’t even tie a record for cover - maybe the speed at which it occurred though.
I think they are working on “record for this date,” so it is possible to have a record on this day that doesn’t equal a record on another. day.
Reminds me I need to check the St Clair River the next time I go to Port Huron. My dad (born 1915) claimed it froze over when he was a kid and they were able to walk across the ice to Sarnia, Ontario. I’ve not seen that during my lifetime
My great granddad used to run bootleg alcohol across the Detroit river in the winter.
What a coincidence! My great granddad used to drink bootleg booze that was run across the Detroit River! Grandpa told me that his Dad would go blind for a few days after he got a bellyful of that liquor. Then great grandma would hit him with a mop. I think my son inherited her swing. He was close to 400 his last season.
This has to be a winter for the ages...
I don’t know what to say. It’s 75 tomorrow, golfing looks good if can get a tee. But then, it’s 115 in June....
yeah but i don’t have to check my shoes every time before i put them on.
115 dry heat isn’t as bad as 115 tropical.
A frozen wave in Lake Michigan
That was a quick freeze...Lucky no one was surfing when it hit...
When Lake Superior freezes over I think about the wolves of Isle Royale. They came over to the island when the ice froze and they dined on moose. Now the wolves are dying out due to inbreeding and a genetic defect that affects a bone in the vertebrae. Will new wolves come over this year and take over or will the pack die out and alow the moose to take over?
Can you provide a link for the frozen wave pic?
I’m here in the Chicago area and saw nothing of this anywhere!
I did a google image search for “Great Lakes iceberg”
The pictures I posted are actually a number of years old.
My buddy’s brother lost a truck into the ice of Lake Erie at Vermillion during the Winter of 1977. He needs to go back and take a peek.
My grand dad born 18 something in Sarnia talked about the River St. Clair being frozen over and walking to Port Huron.
Erie surprises me.....
Erie surprises me.....
We have had folks walking on ponds in middle tn all winter
Erie is a shallow lake
True, people tell me it’s a “dry heat” all the time. I always say, “Tell that to the turkey in the oven.”
115 in the Philippines must really suck.
Hence the qualifier at the end of my original post (that it might be for the speed at which it occurred). I did read the article and they claimed that superior had never iced over, which isn’t true. I also provided a link to the article I referred to in my next post, you should check it out; it’s worth the two minutes it takes to read anyhow.
Not Global COOLING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How can so many junk “scientists” be sooooooo wrong?
