MADELINE ISLAND, Wis. (WSAU) -- Sure, it’s June. So would you expect to find ice on the lake?

Department of Natural Resources Warden Lynna Gurnoe found some. While on patrol on Lake Superior, a Department of Natural Resources boat patrol found a large floating iceberg.

It was 80 degrees, and there was ice floating on the lake.

Gurnoe’s partner, Marine Warden Amie Egstad says, "We were on today’s commercial net check and there was this big iceberg -- along with other ice packs and bergs floating around backside of Madeline Island area east towards Saxon Harbor."

It was a reminder of the winter that just wouldn’t go away.
