This is amazing footage and a bit scary. Mother nature has more tricks up her sleeve than we know about.

Ice Charging Into Northern Minn. Homes Caught on Video

Ice outs are still happening on lakes in northern Minnesota because of our cold and snowy spring.

Now, homes along the shore of Lake Mille Lacs are getting damaged because the ice is moving like a glacier, and pushing up against the homes.

My heart goes out to those homeowners

There is a lesson here.

Mother Nature 1 Mankind 0

Always the same result! There is a lesson here.

Sadly, Mankind seems incapable of learning

Saw this on the national news. Awsome. It is almost like it is a living thing. The waves are vibrating it along and into the house.

On the plus side, it's forecast to be 90 degrees here in Minnesota on Tuesday! Bloody well freezing today (forecast for frost tonight) and it'll be 90 in three days.

The weather has gone mad.

WOW I have seen ice wave videos on the shore and all..
But I have never seen ice come into peoples homes before!
This is a very interesting video OP thanks.

Its almost like "The Nothing" from the Never Ending Story.

Except this would be "The Icing"

"These look like big strong hands don't they. Not even they could stop the Icing."

Here is a other ice tsunami in Manitoba wall of ice 9 meter high

www.abovetopsecret.com...
A local state of emergency has been declared in a western Manitoba municipality after homes in Ochre Beach were destroyed and seriously damaged by a wave of lake ice.

Area officials told CBC News the wind pushed built-up ice off Dauphin Lake on Friday evening and caused it to pile up in the community, located on the lake's southern shore.



Now this sure make me glad I only have a small lake at the front of my place
and their not one single thing you can do and watch it happen

I blame global warming/cooling/climate change/ CO2/cow farts/termites (they produce the most animal methane)/volcanoes/ocean algae bloom/charcoal barbies, etc.whatever.

You take a risk building houses near streams, lakes or rivers. Although the view is beautiful and breath taking, they're more prone to flooding and land erosion. Now they have to contend with ice flows! I'm sure most of these homeowners have flood insurance on their homes, but you have to wonder if the insurance companies will cover ice flow. To keep them from paying damages, they may label it as an act of God.

What it seems strange to me is that nobody is doing nothing other than filming and OMG-ing all the time. I mean, really? You see that thing coming toward your house, it's obvious that at some point it will push and do some damage and all you can do is filming? then go crying to the insurance company?
Some people are just hopeless. But hey, at least they got their video on the news

What on earth do you expect them to do? This is literally tons of ice, coming ashore and striking these structures in a matter of a 1/2 hour or so.

You figure they should just start shoveling and hold it back that way?

Get to the rental store and rent a bobcat. Or rent some other earth moving machine, maybe a bulldozer.

Oh, come on. Even if you could rent a skid steer or bulldozer and get it there in the 1/2 hour (or less, one report said it happened in 15 minutes) there's no way either one is going to stop an eight foot wall of ice.
