srsly?

proving one again that phil is the only predictor that can be relied on, this loathsome winter drags on.
the weather channel forecast a lone single inch of accumulation until mere hours before the blizzard made fools of them again.
they say now there's only been 3.1 inches of snow (perhaps to save some face) but i measured it at 4. which is 4 more inches than i wanted to see in march.

Did you watch the outdoor hockey game last night?

i can't bear to even look at that much ice. i haven't watched a hockey game since december, except for the shootout portion of the win against the russians.

Better not look at Lake Michigan... or so I hear.

we're renting a house on lake michigan this summer, and i wanted to go look at the property before signing on the dotted line, but haven't yet because this snow has been everywhere endlessly. but i almost did anyway in february, and i realized then that despite all the summers i'd spent on the lake i don't think i've ever seen it in winter, in person. (i saw plenty of smaller frozen lakes growing up, but not the big lake).

What I saw on the gas station TV news was that Lake Michigan is at the maximum frozen % ever recorded? True?

false. it was at 90% on monday, not sure where it's at yet, but the record since 1973 (when a certain method of measuring began) was 93.1. for the great lakes in aggregate it's the 2nd highest ever with 90% (the record of 94.8% from 1994). lake ontario drags the number down because it's really deep but has a small surface area. i posted before and planned to again. the article i read said there's a chance they'll still ice over more.
