(CNN) - This winter's intense cold has led to a record amount of ice on Lake Michigan.
The National Weather Service says more than 93-percent of the lake was covered in ice on Saturday.
A rapid build-up of ice came with a stretch of cold weather from late February into the first week of March.
The Great Lakes environmental research laboratory measured the ice cover at 93.29-percent.
That's the most since record keeping started in 1973, breaking the record of 93.1-percent set in 1977.
