As of Friday morning, Lake Erie was 63.1 percent frozen, according to the NOAA Great Lakes Coastal Forecasting System.
With the extreme cold, the ice will continue to rapidly expand. NOAA predicts that all of Lake Erie could be frozen over by Saturday (tomorrow).

Compare to Lake Erie ice coverage in 2016 and 2017. There is a HUGE difference.
Polar bears would love it.
