Al Gore says the North Pole will disappear in 5 years.
But not this year… Lake Superior is already frozen on its western end.

Lake Superior froze over in December for the first time in 17 years.

If the big lake seems to have an unusually placid appearance off Duluth’s shores these days, it’s because you’re looking at ice.
The western tip of Lake Superior has frozen over in December for the first time in recent memory, and that could mean a long season of ice angling that hasn’t been seen in years.
“We were just talking that it’s been something like 17 years since we had a good, long ice fishing season at this corner of Lake Superior,” said Russ Francisco, owner of Marine General sporting goods store in Duluth. “This is the most ice I’ve seen in December in years… I wouldn’t go out yet, but if it stays cold and we don’t get a big wind, people will be out there fishing soon.”
…Francisco said in the rare years recently when Lake Superior has partially frozen, it’s usually in February or early March, after months of cold weather. Anglers and ice skaters had a few weeks of good ice in February 2007, for example, before temperatures rose and the ice blew out.
