More empirical evidence. I actually saw one story that tried to say it freezes over every year, as if minimizing the damage this bit of empiricism does to global warming. So much for melting ice. But remember...LOL...this freezing is PROOF of warming too, just as melting is PROOF of warming. Clever, eh?
Following a cold snap in the Northeast, Lake Erie's surface is virtually frozen over for the first time in about 14 years.
The ice ranges in thickness between paper thin along the northern shore and several inches along the southern shore, where many people are ice skating.
Although the ice cover is considered complete, prevailing winds have created some cracks in the ice.
