This winter has given us the largest Great Lakes freeze the Midwest has seen in nearly 20 years, experts say.

The world’s largest group of freshwater lakes, the Great Lakes have nearly an 80 percent freeze rate this winter. By February 6, authorities say that the lakes came to 78.9 percent frozen.

Not since 1996 have the lakes seen as much frozen surface.

Lake Superior is 92 percent frozen over its surface, breaking the old record of 91 percent frozen set in the winter of 1994.
