A year ago 2018 and today 2019.
Wow! Incredible....both pics are beautiful!
What a lovely place.
So far so good on Lake Ontario in favor of a fast spring start. We’ve been fooled before though, Jan/feb are always the keys. If we can get through most of January with minimal ice late March splash becomes realistic.
60° here today, Long Island NY.
But I don’t think it’s going to last.......
I think we set a record for low snow fall in December? I wouldn’t mind this being a trend but January and February can be ruthless.
I bet you guys back there are glad to see the open water. Some snow would be nice to keep the lake levels up.
We take whatever we get as there is no control over what happens. There has been plenty of precipitation in the upper midwest and Lake Michigan remains well above average levels. It is nice to see open water in the winter for a change.
Absolutely. Open water is always better to see than frozen stuff.
Our lake levels are up, no ice allows evaporation, hope it goes down a foot this year.
I prefer the third pic, there's no boat in the other two
You keeping an eye on the IJC water level reports? Good thing they're keeping the gates open wider this year, compared to 2017.
Not sure if you facebook, but they release data pretty regularly.
My house in Beaufort, SC on Jan 2, 2018. Yesterday it was 80.
Here is the latest for Michigan/Huron (my boat is on Huron)
The weekly report of the Corps of Engineers shows Lake Michigan/Huron dropped 1" in the past 30 days. However, it remains 3" higher than it was for this period a year ago according to the report. I guess all the rain has been keeping things higher than one would expect. We can not see much change in water levels at our dock compared to last month. It goes up and down every day depending on winds and barometric pressure.
Thanks for posting this regularly.
Clearly this is global warming.... Prepare for the Apocalypse....
Before warming it was we are entering an ice age according to Time magazine back in the day. That did not work out and it became warming. Now it is climate change, which creates extreme cold, heat, tornados, hurricanes, drought; you name it. The problem for the political meteorologists is ancient ice cores and tree rings on ancient trees demonstrate natural variation in weather of the sort we experience that go back before the industrial revolution in the late 1890s. As Al Gore is is fond of saying, the truth is inconvenient.
I do check it occasionally but I hadn’t done it on Facebook, just followed the page for updates. Thanks for the link
Also, The comments in there are priceless. I feel people’s pain from 2017 but some of the stuff they post is pretty funny. Pretty amazing to look at the graphs with 2017 plotted though, that was a wild year.
We’re moving the boat to the Port of Rochester this year which I’m really excited about, so hopefully levels stay within reason and the lake stays liquid.
Yeah, 2017 was rough.
Sounds like a great move. Lot of stuff to do in Charlotte (wait, we're not supposed to call it that anymore), and the marina facilities are absolute first rate. The only downside I remember is that it was a damn long walk from where we were on the angled transient docks on the south end of the marina to the offices and shops. The upside though, was that we had constant public ramp entertainment.
