An earlier-than-normal freeze in the Chicago area is disrupting holiday plans for some people hoping to take a cruise on Lake Michigan.

The ice on the lake has caused one Chicago cruise line to cancel its New Year’s Eve fireworks cruise.

Oficials say more than 13% of the lake is covered by ice.

That’s compared to this time last year, where there was no ice at all.

Te Coast Guard says it’s busy breaking through the ice, to make sure shipping crews can make their scheduled deliveries.
