You know it's frigid when Lake Coeur d'Alene shows obvious signs of freezing. This week's bone-chilling temperatures have made the lake's shores turn to ice, but don't bother breaking out your skates. “It won't be cold long enough for the lake to freeze over,” said climatologist Cliff Harris. Thursday's low of minus 8 degrees tied the record for Feb. 6 set in 1929. The temperature was as cold as it has been since Nov. 24, 2010, when it was minus 9. With the wind chill factor, Thursday's temperature reached minus 11, Harris said. Harris said the last time Lake Coeur d'Alene froze over was 2000/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
