We've waited a long time to enjoy temperatures regularly in the 70s and even into the 80s, but the Great Lakes haven't gotten the memo.

There is still ice on the Great Lakes.

Since the start of winter we've seen record ice coverage on the Great Lakes. Our warming temperatures have nearly cleared all of the ice from the Great Lakes, but not yet.

The NOAA's ice coverage report for May 21 shows the Great Lakes are still 1.6% covered with ice.

Not much, but who isn't going to cheer when that number finally hits 0.0%?

Also hoping Mother Nature doesn't send another hailstorm that drops tons of ice into Lake Michigan. Seems like poor taste of humor.
