"Frost cover means spring's warmth could lead moisture to run off into lakes and rivers rather than seep into the ground." ---- If so, it should be VERY interesting to see if White Bear Lake's level goes up one bit. If it does not, I think that lake is a done fer.

WBL is supposedly drying up because of overuse of the underlying aquifer. If that is the case, any extra filling due to a quick runoff that goes directly to the lake instead of sinking into the aquifer will be very short-lived. Bill G.

No matter what happens, rest assured it will be the result of climate change. Wet, dry, good moisture, bad moisture, drought or flood stage, it's always because of climate change.
