Lake Superior was officially listed as 91 percent ice cover as of Thursday and may be on its way to full ice cover this winter. A Thursday satellite photo, however, clearly shows lots of open water along the North Shore, while areas around the Apostle Islands are clearly ice covered. Other shades in the photo are ice of varying thickness, or clouds caused by water evaporating from open areas of the lake. NASA satellite photo.
