OK... Still, there are many years when ice breakers are used to cut a
channel through the completely frozen lake. Also, that 210' depth is in
the east end of the lake, where the lake effect snowfall causes cities
and towns to deal with 5' or more in a single day of snow. Get enough
days of that and the lake freezes over.
