Lake Superior Ice Cover 2015 to 2016

I was curious about the difference in Lake Superior ice coverage this year compared to last year.  Wow.  What a difference!  This week last year the lake was 90 percent covered in ice.  This year it is only around 18 percent.

The sun came out yesterday after a week-long snow storm.  It gave me a chance to roof rake.  As you can see -- it had to be done!
