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.

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
