An informative flight from Thunder Bay over Lake Nipigon brought answers as to why a huge lake in Canada, that has an area of nearly 2,000 square miles and a maximum depth of 541 feet, was the first large lake to freeze over on a weather map. A late autumn view, looking northwest over Ontario from southern Wisconsin shows a large white spot above Lake Superior. The answer is obvious. Recent maps have vast numbers of large lakes on them that are, in reality: reservoirs. Our quest for cheap electricity and flood control has installed more surface waters on the globe that were not here 150 years ago. The reason it froze first is because it is a shallow reservoir that has a deep spot in the old river canyon. An unseen dam gave it the illusion that it was a Natural Lake with many islands. The presence of Rift Lake Superior and Hudson Bay will drag down Arctic jet streams and freeze Lake Nipigon quickly. The Great Lakes also has a long-term effect on weather patterns and were responsible for the intrusions of different glacier periods. Glaciers destroy geographical history and wipe out evidence of what was here eons ago. Wisconsin, minus the Driftless Area of the southwest part of the State, is missing 2 million years or more of history. All evidence was plowed under and eradicated. Weather, glaciers, plate tectonics, and life are the reasons our planet doesn’t look like the crater riddled moon. Impact Craters have been mutated and buried. This has produced a generation of scientists that use hard, proven evidence of meteorite hits to verify their existence. They use concentrated gravity anomalies, crater shapes, shocked quartz, drilled samples, and rock analysis to determine if a true impact structure is there. This fits when a big rock smashes into our planet, but looking at all the diversity of everything floating about in our universe, what happens if earth gets slammed by a giant ice ball? The culprit disintegrates into byproducts of liquid or gas that vanish.

Lake Nipigon is an 1,872 square mile reservoir that overlays a glacier depression lake. In the 1940’s, some 5,000 square miles of watershed was diverted from the Albany River which flowed into James Bay and redirected into Lake Nipigon via the Ogoki and Jackfish Rivers. In 1950’s the Pine Portage dam was built and raised the Lake 100′. The purpose was to direct a larger volume of water into the hydro power plants at Niagara Falls in New York.
