Lake Erie Winter

Andy | Tuesday, January 30, 2018 | Best Blogger Tips
Lake Erie is the shallowest of the Great Lakes and is the first one to freeze. With all of the Arctic air streaming across in the last week of 2017 and the first week of 2018 it set up the perfect conditions for a quick freeze up. Shortly after the Christmas holiday, forecasters in the National Weather Service office in Buffalo were saying that there was a good chance that they could see Lake Erie completely freeze over. If so, that would be the first time in 17 years.

  4. That really is mind boggling to think a body of water that large could completely freeze over. This is a very desolate looking shore line.

  8. I wonder if it did freeze over, Andy! The warm weather we got probably melted a lot of it.

  9. I always thought Lake Erie was too full of chemicals to freeze. In fact, wasn't water from Lake Erie used as antifreeze in cars a few years back. I know it was used to develop film at one point.

  13. That does look like something of a moonscape. I'm embarrassed at how little I really know about the Great Lakes. They look so much like an ocean it's hard to conceive of any of them freezing over.
