For the first time in 20 years, The Great Lakes are nearly frozen over (11 pictures)

The world’s largest group of freshwater lakes is almost completely covered in ice (88.4% to be more precise). Ice hasn’t been so widespread on the Great Lakes since early 1994. In the past four winters, the peak ice coverage was about 40% or less and a 40-year average is just over 51%, so you can see why this is such a big event.
