New York homes encased in ice after freezing temperatures and strong winds

This is nothing new, but very wild, cool and beautiful.

Nature certainly can be an artist—as well as destroyer.




Lakeside homes in the US have been covered in three feet of ice after two days of gale-force winds.

Residents in Hamburg, New York, woke up to find their homes covered in icicles over the weekend.

Photographs from the town show the properties, which sit yards from Lake Erie, and nearby trees completely encased in ice - which locals have described as "frightening".



The ice makes the houses appear as if they're ice sculptures or something out of the movie "Frozen."
And while the sight is definitely surreal and remarkable, residents are worried it could cause structural damage to their homes.


I can't imagine waking up and being iced in, a sheet of ice over the entire house—windows, doors, everything.

Very neat. I like the kind of apocalyptic feel these images give.
Great example of how mother nature truly is the master artist.

Very nice, But I have to ask, what's with the brownish tinge to the ice? Is it just a consequence of the strong winds carrying dust particles?

So, we survived 2012 what about The Day After Tomorrow?

So, was the buildings okay?

My guess would be sand, plus dirt and dust. I mean, they look like sand castles, almost.

Shovel? They're gonna have to take a jackhammer to their houses to break up all that ice, lol.

Great movie.

As far as the buildings, according to the articles they suspect some damage but will not know the extent until the ice melts.

That's a lot of weight in ice, though.

Yup, it'll do it: creating extreme weather cycles.

It also reminds me a little of the color of "shore foam" the kind of brown foam you sometimes see at shores.

Maybe it's made of the same compound and blown by the wind of the top of the lake.

the joys of owning a lakefront house. i remember a watermain break by my house that did that to a couple parked cars one winter. also a customer that had decided to wash his cars in the winter, we had to park them in the shop a couple hours to thaw.
