To be fair, we've not had a winter like that in decades. And Lake Ontario
didn't freeze that much...it just got all the upstream ice in large, boat-holing chunks. The main effect is that the very cold lake and the increasingly hot land is making its own wind
and mist, and you can't dress for either temperature...you have to carry fleeces down to the boat and change aboard.
