The Five Great Ice Rinks

Look at this satellite image below, of the ice cover on the five Great Lakes.


I find this quite amazing, it looks like it could be Antarctica, rather than Wisconsin, Michigan and Ontario.

As of February 5, 2014, the entire Great Lakes system is now reportedly covered 77 percent with ice, according to the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory. Last week at this time the ice cover was 66 percent. The 77 percent ice cover now still lags behind 1994, when the entire Great Lakes system had an average ice cover of 84 percent.

It's also increasing the ice pack in "East" Antarctica (in other news, there is an "East" Antarctica). Is there anything global warming can't do?

There can't be a 'north' Antarctica though, wouldn't that disturb the quartering of the universe?

It's all such nonsense, and therefore, such wonder~!
