Over 3/4 of a trillion gallons (778.4 Billion gallons to be precise) fell on Lake Michigan last week alone with the massive rain storm that dumped a whole months worth of rain in little over a day

 

Great%20Lakes1_1498771111105_62017933_ve

 

The 778 Billion Gallons caused the lake to rise yet another 2 inches this last week alone

 

While all 5 of the Great Lakes (Superior, Huron, Michigan, Erie and Ontario) are extremely bloated and at all time highs, Lake Michigan is the one that is the most above normal

 

Lake Michigan is also the lake most likely to cause significant damage in 2020 to trails, parks and shorelines as it overflows. Chicago area continues to be of particular concern

Close to 3 trillion :messga:

 

That's just lake Michigan alone cuz the rest of the great lakes got a hell of a dumping too especially Lake Erie and lake Ontario

 

Lake Superior probably got way less cuz it only got the tip of the storm

 

Either way lake Superior is so large and deep (has more water than all the other lakes combined) that it takes a huge amount of water difference to change its level even 1 inch

 

Even so, Lake Superior is bloated and overflowing like the rest of the lakes just by a little less :selena:

 

Lake Michigan is the one that's overflowing the most tho

Global warming. 

We can pin point to each other but we need to figure out how to handle this crisis together.

The Irony is that for decades Global warming kept causing levels to fall... The lakes fell so low that cargo ships had to start lightening the loads

 

And they thought the levels would keep dropping

 

Now the last several years we keep getting way more precipitation than evaporation and the water just keeps rising and rising and rising

 

One big factor is that we crossed a threshold where precipitation now has been rising faster than evaporation. Not in the summers which have gotten drier but in the other 3 seasons which for the year as a whole also more than compensate for drier summers

 

Another thing is that warmer winters at first increased winter evaporation because less of the lake surface would freeze (which stops malt evaporation during winter)...

 

But now they have warmed up enough that we have more humid days (when it gets very cold the air gets super dry)... The increased damp days from less bitter cold ends up reducing evaporation despite less ice coverage

 

So while lakes were drying up, we crossed a threshold now where it seems like the exact opposite is happening now.... Now it's too much water
