Are you concerned that (within recorded history) Lake Superior is at an all-time low water level? We can easily understand how that affects the ore freighters and other boats, but how does this affect the average citizen?
According to the Minnesota Public Radio article Â Low level of Lake Superior raises concern and costs:
The lake is a victim of the weather, and the weather has been warm and dry. The Duluth region is officially in extreme drought. As of late December, Duluth's rainfall is seven inches below normal for the year.
I can only begin to imagine the impact this has on the systems that depend on Lake Superior. Can we make sense of how something this big and seemingly unrelated to our daily lives is actually affects us?
