I’m sorry, you were saying something about “Global Warming?” Too busy laughing at you while I point to this!
After having a meltdown early last week, Lake Michigan is now just over 90 percent covered in ice, which equals the highest levels ever recorded.
The lake was also just over 90 percent frozen in 1976, 1979 and 1994, according to the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration.
The unyielding cold weather has caused the ice on Lake Michigan to continue to expand the last several days.
The below high-resolution visible satellite image from March 2 shows widespread ice cover over central Lake Michigan.
A small area of open water remained on the eastern side of the lake, well away from the Michigan shore.
Here’s a satellite photo of the ice:
The two-headed co-leaders of Russia, Dmitry Medvedev and Vladimir Putin in the immediate moments after the Russian national team lost 3–1 to Finland in the Olympic Men’s Hockey quarterfinal.
The victory for Finland puts them up against the Swedes in one of the two Olympic hockey semi-finals. With victories later this afternoon, the other semi-final could be a match-up between Team Canada and Team USA; a rematch of the 2010 Gold Medal game from Vancouver.
Both games start at 11:00 Wisconsin time. The Canadians take on Team Latvia, while the US faces the Czech Republic.
