Great Lakes Ice Coverage Nears Record

(Ann Arbor, MI) -- The Great Lakes are now 90-point-five-percent iced over. The latest numbers are from NOAA's Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory and show the most ice coverage of the lakes since the record of 94-point-seven-percent coverage was set in 1979. Climatologists expect the record will be broken within the next several days as temperatures remain bitterly cold. It's not believed the lakes have ever been completely frozen before.
