  1. With the Great Lakes as cold as they are (surface and whole lake volume mean temperatures are also provided on the same link) how long will it be before we hear one of the bordering states’ Departments of Natural Resources tweet that climate change is adversely affecting the waters of the Great Lakes? By July?

    I am willing to bet that Las Vegas bookies will take that on 2:5 odds.

  2. I would also think its a safe bet that what is being seen now in North America, are the same conditions as that experienced during Dalton and the end of the first Solar Cycle of the Dalton GSM and the following cycle.
    As a pointer look at the Winter weather conditions for the period of the American Revolution and the following wars betwen England and the US all the way though Dalton.

  3. Central NY USA. Weather Channel said it would be 6F this morning. It was -7F on our thermometer. Checked TV and they say it’s 3F. Seriously! How could I have a 10-13 degree difference from them?!

  4. if you mean there will still be some ice on the Great Lakes left over from this Winter as late as July?

    Yes. I think we see 100% Freeze Over this Winter.

  5. What year did the Great Lakes almost freeze over completely?

    I am sure with all this cold and snow NOAA is diligently massaging the temperature data to make it the warmest year on record.

  6. What year did the Great Lakes almost freeze over completely?

    • “The all-time record for ice coverage of all the Great Lakes is 94.7 percent in 1979. But Lake Superior, the biggest of the five, is typically the last to ice over. In 1994, the last time it came close, 91 percent of its surface iced over. Lake Erie, conversely, is the shallowest of the lakes and freezes nearly every year.” – source FOX News

  7. I am thinking that further down the line, when there is a ice a mile high over Chicago, that the elite will still say that it’s being caused by “Climate Change”.
