How Cold Was It? Ladies and Gentlemen, the Great Lakes


NOAA's GOES-East satellite captured a Midwestern wintertime "White Out" at 2015 UTC/3:15 p.m. EST on January 6, 2014.
Blowing snow and intensely cold air created dangerous white-out conditions over the Midwest, particularly around the Great Lakes, where daytime temperatures averaged -20F with a wind chill near -50F. Satellite Sees a Midwest White Out | NASA

Your Say

And you know of course how those great lakes got there, right? Something about several hundreds of feet thick glaciers gouged them out. And now you know how the ice got there. Just had some bad winters, with some equally cool springs and summers. Altough they say, the ice started from the Columbia Ice Cap over by Banff. Couldn't happen to a couple of nicer places: Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee, Madison.

JAF - Nah. They would all just move to the South (or back to the South as the case may be).

Umm - JAF? I live in Lansing; so...could you stop cheering for the ice already?
