Global Warming? Almost 5,000 Square Miles of the Great Lakes Froze Over Night

Well, all this darned ol’ global warming sure is makin’ it cold outside! It is so cold in the upper Midwest that nearly 5,000 square miles of the Great Lakes froze over night last night!

The Great Lakes had record ice last year, but so far it is looking like this year might just beat that record. Regardless last night is was an amazing instant freeze…

The total ice cover on the Great Lakes is now rated at 82.3 percent as of Tuesday. On the same date last year, the Great Lakes had 81.6 percent total ice cover.

The Great Lakes ice cover has grown over 5 percent in the past 24 hours. That’s about 4,750 square miles of ice overnight. At that pace of ice growth, the Great Lakes would be almost totally iced over in the next four days.

The blast of arctic cold tonight through Friday will certainly help ice continue to grow.

Chicago has been breaking temperature records that have stayed in effect since the 1930s.

Man, now we WANT global warming to hit us!
