The satellite image taken by NASA Earth Observatory on Jan. 9 show the extensive ice cover on Lake Erie that developed this winter. The persistent cold temperatures and abundance of sub-zero days created ice that covered 92.2 percent of the total surface area of the Great Lakes on March 6, according to the Weather Channel.


An ice shove about 15 feet high buried the lower tow path at Side Cut Metropark along the Maumee River in late February.
