Michigan and Ontario are under achievers.
Lake Huron, Lake Superior, and Lake Erie have apparently frozen over (according to this source).
It’s been nearly 10 years since the big water has completely skimmed over so it’s not all that common. That’s one additional confirmation we’ve been through an extended cold spell because it takes a state fair quality winter to freeze that much water. Lake Superior alone is 32,000 square miles! (You could fit 500 Lake Vermilions’ into Lake Superior.)
