Accuweather reports:

“Following a cold snap in the Northeast, Lake Erie’s surface is virtually frozen over for the first time in about 14 years.

GoErie.com reports that the lake hasn’t completely frozen since the winter of 1995-1996…The current cold snap will keep the lake mostly, if not completely, frozen for at least the rest of the month.”

The ice ranges in thickness between paper thin along the northern shore and several inches along the southern shore, where many people are ice skating.

When reached for comment, former Vice-President Gore said, “Aw, shut up.”
