It Comes & Goes Fast In The South, Lake Erie Finally Freezes

Well the snow is rapidly retreating across the deep south - but the big "glacier" across the northern half of the United States is holding strong.

And Lake Erie has frozen over for the first time in several years.

On the northern fringes the ice is paper thin, while on the southern portions it is a few inches thick.

Now that it is frozen, it will "turn off" the lake effect snow for areas downwind of the lake. At least for a few weeks, until it thaws.
