    I read that article. Something like 78% frozen. Awesome. Lake Ontario wrecking the curve only being 29% because of its depth.

    The sentance in the article that worries me is this one :


    Right now we are at 78.5%. Just a week ago the ice cover was 66 percent.

    That's HUGE.

    Still early February. Enough cold already for me damit.

    We were having a monster winter until lake Erie froze. Now I'm hoping once it starts thawing all the open water doesn't start making more lake effect for us. I'm tired of plowing already and I'm getting antsy for excavating season to start.

    No, there hasn't been enough cold. Lake Michigan has way too much open water. Sick and tired of lake effect of a couple inches. Give me 10"+ storms. People are a lot more forgiving.

    When do they open up the dam up there? I can't remember what it is called but grandview put an article up a couple years ago about it I believe?

    Ice boom,not till the lake is under 250 sq miles of ice. When fully iced over the lake is 10,000 sq miles of ice.
