I just had to share this video with you all since I recently posted the Ice Chandelier blog.
This link show one of our very large lake (Lake Mille Lacs) with ice that was still on the lake and winds gusting & close to sustained at 40 MPH. Watch & see yet another interesting phenomenon!!


Just another day in the life of a Minnesotan!!

    Wow!!! That was something! The sound and to see it crawling like a spider up the lawns! I always said, living right by any bodies of water is not a good idea-no matter where! And this was really amazing that it was caught on video! Pretty scary though! If it had kept going, who knows what it would have done! emoticon

    Oh my gosh. Simply amazing!
    I spent a week fishing on that lake a long time ago. What an experience. It would be sunny, hot and calm. All of a sudden, it would be gray, pelting rain, and hail the size of quarters. My brother and I were laying under ponchos on the bottom of the boat while my husband tried to steer us to shore.
    Every day was like that.
    Thanks for sharing the video.
    The lake certainly has a reputation for sudden changes.

    I saw this on the news but this really makes it real. Mother Nature's forces are getting out of control, all the freaky things happening across the country. Makes me nervous.

    That's kind of freaky, isn't it?

    I saw this briefly on the news, but this video showed it in much more detail. I have never seen anything like this in my life. Glad to know no one was hurt.

    Hard to believe! I saw this on the news too, and feel for the poor people whose houses are affected.

    It's incredible what the ice did. WCCO did a 'good question' about it tonight and because it was wind causing the ice to move off the lake like that, insurance should cover much of the damage. Even when the remaining ice, that they weren't able to move with heavy equipment, melts and damages or floods some homes it should be covered. The exception might be condos where the outside is insured by an association, if the inside belongings are damaged but the owner doesn't have enough insurance to cover the belongings they won't have everything inside replaced.

    I had no idea something like that could happen! I saw this on the news tonight, though, and wondered if it was anywhere near where you are. So scary and surreal. Those poor people who had to stand and watch it come and were powerless to stop it. So glad that no one was hurt. emoticon
