How is the ice cover on Lake Superior? Looks like a good portion is now covered with ice. Is the lake effect snow over for the season?

That's what I was thinking this morning. It almost looks as if the lake effect is back to normal, so those winds must have broke the ice up.

Those 60 mph winds we had up here in the Keweenaw were just what the Lake Effect Snow Dr ordered. Last week, ice cover in the western lake was high enough to diminish the LES formation significantly.
