Kind of hard to link that to Greg's assertion that global warming is causing the low levels he is seeing today.
You're right on this particular specific maybe, but I think, in general, global warming will cause all sorts of seen and unforseen problems. We can't trace out a pure cause-effect connection between any two real world events.

Not too hard. Global warming means less snow pack in the mountains. Its melting feeds the Great Lakes. Think of it as delayed rainfall.

(OTOH the Great Lakes also have a cyclic nature that is not tied to AGW.)

(BTW in our part of the world-PNW, the mountain snowpack is 40% above average, threatening serious flooding later in May.)
