Climate Change Hits the Great Lakes [Gallery]

Lake Superior frozen

For the first time this century, the Great Lakes are over 80% frozen. And it’s all thanks to a Polar Vortex.

Though the cold snap means many on the east coast of North America have had to bundle up extra warm the past few months, it does provide us with some beautiful shots of frozen scenery. These photos, taken by The Cookery Maven, make Lake Superior look more like Superman’s Fortress of Solitude than one of our Great Lakes.
