Re: Anyone Else Tired of Winter?

One of my employees drove to work this morning on his snowmobile. We got about 3 inches of fresh powder. Two years ago we were mowing grass.

We are hitting record colds in Michigan still. As soon as my boat thaws I am gone.

Re: Anyone Else Tired of Winter?

A benefit of the cold winter is higher lake levels in the Great Lakes. The past few winters have been fairly mild which contributes to less of the lakes being covered with ice causing more of the lake to evaporate. Lake Ontario is expected to rise nearly 6 inches this year from last year. The highest rise in lake level is expected in Lake Superior and Lake Huron.
