    Oh sure. By those standards, Orchard Lake (not THAT "big money" Orchard Lake in metro Detroit) is definitely a lake.

        We have, officially, 11,842 bodies of water that are classified as lakes, based upon a size requirements someone put forth somewhere. However, those requirements are not set forth by the State of MN, per the DNR's site.

          So, the DNR is kind of going with, "If we say it's a lake, it's a lake. That's all that counts."
          Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

            Yeah, it's weird. Someone in the state has declared a value somewhere, because I recall reading some values somewhere. All bodies of water over X acres came up to that 11,842 (which I remember from that MN Twins commercial, "We know that '10,000 lakes" is really Minnesota Nice for 11,842."). I also remember reading that if we used the same size here as our neighboring states, we would actually tally over 14,000 lakes here.

            Also, the difference between a pond and a swamp is that a pond's water has a flow to it, like a lake, while a swamp's water is stagnant.

            Lastly, around the St. Cloud are is supposed to get snow while we get rain.

              That's what I was thinking of, but can't remember the source.

                    If there's a size requirement than no.

                      Reading their description, there is no set size requirement. Some other party DID set a size requirement, though, hence the confusion.

                                If Minnesota has 10,000 actual lakes, then Wisconsin has 100,000 of them. 10,000 ponds, maybe. Pondettes.
