Ice Tsunami

     It looks like a scene from the horror movie "The Blob."  Lake ice being pushed ashore by waves of water crawls towards buildings in its path. Nothing appears able to stop it as it pushes through windows and doors and over houses.  The ice consumes whatever is in its path.

     The good news is the ice will melt and it didn’t swallow any humans like the blob. The moving ice did cause damage to buildings on Lake Mille Lacs in Central Minnesota and in Manitoba. We’ve seen this happen on a small scale level along the shore of Lake Superior but I can’t say I’ve ever seen ice pile up over 30 feet in height and I hope I never do.
