Still ice on Lake Superior never before seen to this extent in the satellite era

IceAgeNow writes: As of today, 27 May 2014, Lake Superior ice cover stands at 4.3% – the greatest level of ice seen on this date, not only on Lake Superior, but on all of the Great Lakes since modern satellite records in 1980-81. Get a load of this picture that shows the Lake Superior beaches on Memorial Day.

Bill Steffen, meteorologist at WOOD-TV writes:

The high temperature at the Marquette Airport (well inland) was 85° on Sunday…but…  This is what it looked like at the beach! (pic. from the Marquette NWS facebook page and Doug Vanb).   Easiest day a lifeguard ever had.    Check out this picture Sunday from the beach at Grand Marais.  Note, not only the expanse of ice, but also, no leaves on the trees yet.  Here’s Union Bay – Silver City MI on Friday.  Here’s the ice at  Black River HarborAnother pic. of the ice at Marquette.

For more info, see the WUWT Great Lakes Ice page: http://wattsupwiththat.com/reference-pages/sea-ice-page/great-lakes-ice-page/

UPDATE: The headline was truncated and gave an inaccurate viewpoint that ice had never been seen on Lake Superior at this late date. It has been updated to reflect that it is about extent, not just the mere appearance of it.

On the plus side, no need to buy expensive bags of ice to keep the beer cold over Memorial Day.

That’s because there are no illegal immigrants on the Lake. (see tagline)

"The backward spring of '96."

I think 1996 may have been the year that NYC never saw 90 degrees.

How is it that we have such high ice levels this winter on the Great Lakes? In a time of global warming? How it is that in late May the ice is still there?

Are we really having global warming? Where’s Al Gore to explain it all to us? We need him to do a power point to show us why this ice means global warming.

Global cooling means less ice for beer coolers. Which equals more disposable income which in turn leads to more consumer spending and a boost to the economy.

Green shoots and cold beer my friends!
