Great Lakes are 88+% froze over. Been a long time since that happened. Imagine walking across a lake that has a surface area of 23,000 sq miles. That's Lake Huron, it's approaching 90% frozen over..

Ice jams in the rivers gonna be real interesting this year.

There's likely going to be some flooding when the ice and snow melts, too. Not so much for the lakes, I think, but always a concern where there are rivers.

Just dug out from 2 feet of snow in the Hudson Valley. Feels a little like it used to in the 1950s when this was normal.

Even here in St. Louis where it snows one day and gone the next, we've had several inches on the ground for a few weeks.

I'm glad someone else remembers that too, not only was it "normal" -- we simply shoveled the snow and then set off for school, which was rarely canceled for "only" 2 feet...

Some days, when we got to the school, some of the older boys would be tasked with shoveling off the school's sidewalks and parking places, too. And then report to classes with the coveted, "Snow Pass".

Neighbors would band together and shovel off whole streets.

Then drive to work afterwards, and many of them could not afford to be late for work, either, they simply got out of bed earlier in order to deal with the snowstorm.

And it seemed like *everybody* knew the proper methods for driving safely in the snow.

Nobody made the claim that it was an End-of-the-World-As-We-Know-It event, either, but then that generation had been to the big city and seen the elephant, so to speak, something called WWII...

Yeah, we're hoping the lake levels rise a bit from it all. Been a couple feet low for a couple decades. However it takes about 10" of snow to make an inch of water.
You are exactly right; it's the rivers that will flood, not the lakes.

Wikipedia says 1.1 million gallons of water flow through the mouth of St Clair river per second. Probably won't be enough come the thaw when ice starts impeding the progress.
That's another unique part. I remember forty years ago when these large snows were not uncommon, but we usually got a January thaw, or at least a few days of warm to melt it and start over. Didn't happen this year.

My front yard has a few feet on it. My landscape lights are a couple feet tall and when I turn them on the snow glows, looks pretty cool.
The piles of snow at the edge of parking lots is hilarious. They might not finish melting until June!

Mind you I am not complaining, just sayin' it ain't a normal winter here. Even considering the past.

Ah, the hubris.

Have we been here long enough to even be able to say what is "normal" about the climate and/or weather?

Methinks not.
