The Great Lakes are free of ice for the first time in 2014



Sunday, June 08, 2014


CHICAGO (WLS) --
 The Great Lakes are free of ice for the first time in 2014, according to the NOAA.

Ice on Lake Superior persisted until early June, thanks to an unusually cold winter and spring. Some tourists took advantage of the bizarre situation, posing on ice floes in their swimwear, as air temperatures reached into the 80s.

Water temperatures are considerably more temperate near Chicago in Lake Michigan, but are still hovering in the 60s, which feels very cold for swimmers. Meteorologist Phil Schwarz says lake shore temperatures may not reach into the 70s until the end of June.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
