Spooky Huge Sheets of Ice Invade Resort

Wind gusts push ice heaves onto shore, damaging homes

Note: Strong language at the 5:30 mark.
It's a video that looks like something out of a horror movie: Huge sheets of ice invading a Minnesota resort and damaging homes. Wind blew the frozen ice from Millie Lacs Lake up onto the shore. The video was taken on Saturday at Izaty's Resort by Darla Johnson.

Here, she documents the aftermath:

A similar phenomenon damaged or destroyed 27 homes by Dauphin Lake in central Manitoba, Canada, on Friday night, the Winnipeg Free Press reported.

The strong language warning came at 5:55, not 5:30. She had to go and drop the F-bomb.

When they talk about Global Warming . people do not realize the some of the effects is changing weather patterns , and then you get odd thing like this happening . The warming starts melting the glaciers and snow and that starts flowing into lakes and rivers and then when the temps rise we get a lot more flooding around any towns and cities built near these lakes and rivers. We are seeing more and more larger storms , bigger hurricanes and more tornado's happening around the globe. Most Reputable climate scientist around the world are agreeing on this and the sooner the people stop burring their heads in the sand and try to make this a political argument are cowards and fools.

I'm thinking a couple of flame-throwers would have worked on this. Perhaps they should have a wall built out of concrete, that would cause the glacier to turn back on itself, or make it travel away from the homes.

The way you stop that ice drive is to make an ice dam by using buckets of unfrozen water or hosing hot water on to the leading edge of the ice to melt the slivers together and make an ice wall. Each little sliver of ice will be pushed by the slivers behind it, but if the leading slivers bond and become an ice wall, the advance will stop and start to go upward. With more unfrozen water, the weight of the ice wall will keep it in place. The thickness of the base of the ice wall should be larger than the height of the wall to keep it from toppling over. Good luck in the future!

Most basement washtubs have a threaded water faucet that allows a hose to be screwed on, allowing one to turn on the 'hot' and spray it...all least around here they do. I've done it to wash my car with hot water spray.
