Ice is nice as long as you don't slip and fall on it. I went to get some spiked shoes today but they didn't have my size.  bleh.gif The roads can get real slick around here.

Anyway, if you're wearing skates it's all good and especially if you run into ice like this:

Jackson Pollock ice eh?
Some big wow factor there, never seen anything like it.
Can't imagine what transpired to cause that.

They're not entirely sure what sort of conditions that caused this. Trippy as hell, I'd love to skate on it. The ice is 10cm thick (that's almost 4 inches)

That's really nice to look at, but I like the abstract. Did you guys see this?

What the world would like like without ice.

Quote:Under international law, the high seas including the North Pole and the region of the Arctic Ocean surrounding it, are not owned by any country. The five surrounding Arctic countries are limited to an exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of 200 nautical miles (370 km; 230 mi) adjacent to their coasts.

Those 5 year old sea level projections aren't valid anymore I think. The levels have not risen at the rate they thought. The post glacial rebound is still greater than any rise in sea levels over here.

They also didn't consider there is a drain that feeds an inner ocean under the crust. 13.gif

The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore ice caves are located several miles outside of Bayfield, Wis., on a 12-mile stretch along the coast. In order to see the caves, Lake Superior has to freeze enough for spectators to walk over ice to the caves.

Conditions were perfect back in 2009, it was amazing.

Maybe we should be guessing how much oil/gas is there and now perhaps easier to get at?

Quote:“This executive order starts the process of opening offshore areas to job-creating energy exploration,” Trump said today before signing the order. “It reverses the previous administration’s Arctic leasing ban ... and directs Secretary Zinke to allow responsible development of offshore areas that will bring revenue to our treasury and jobs to our workers.”

So much for the drilling ban there. sad2.gif
