Lots of Attention for Lake Superior
This year Lake Superior is receiving a lot of attention. From precipitation to water level to the amount of ice cover and the Apostle Island area ice cave adventures have been constant themes in blogs and news reports almost all winter long.
I still haven’t been to the ice caves even though I was in the parking lot ready to go one day. A friend of mine and I wimped out due to the negative something below wind chill and negative something below actual temperature. I know it’s hard to believe I just admitted that I wimped out of something, that isn’t normally the case. I don’t usually wimp out and I doubt I’ve ever admitted it. In any case I didn’t go and it doesn’t seem likely that I’ll make it out there before the ice deteriorates. My loss, but with the thousands of visitors going on weekends and the number of photos posted of it I hardly feel it necessary.
I do feel it necessary to share some information about Lake Superior with you. I read an article about the ice coverage and found this interesting.
The last time the lake’s water level was at or above normal was April 2005, said Cynthia Jarema of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Detroit District.” http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/event/article/id/292713/group/homepage/
That is good news for our Great Lake Superior.
