Great Lakes ice cover extent:
I made a few notes, but don't know if March 9 was the maximum day, but it was close to it.
This year was 80.0% cover.
Same date in 2018 was 28.9%.
In 2017 it was 6.2%.
The later was low because of lingering effects from the El Nino warming, which is weather.
Numbers today are
8.2%, 5.8% and 0.4%.
Of interest is that geologically speaking, water in its solid state is called a mineral. With hexagonal crystallography.
The point is that the mineral only exists at below the freezing point at 32F.
Despite what the MSM insists, ice and snow are not caused by global warming
