    Happened today at lake Mille Lacs here in MN. Starts getting really good around the 3 minute mark. Eventually pushed in doors and entered houses. Some places ended up with 25 ft tall ice piles.

    And here is the aftermath

    It certainly is. Trying to dig up the picture they showed on the local news here where two guys were standing in front of an ice pile that dwarfed them.

    I hadn't either and I've lived here all my life... then again I'm not much of a lake guy. Apparently it has something to do with the ice being very brittle and the 30-40mph winds we had this morning/afternoon pushing it against the shore which eventually builds it up to the point it has no where else to go but inland. The other side of the lake is probably now open water for a good distance.

    Usually the lakes are iced out by this time of year but the temps have been quite low compared to normal. Tonight it is supposed to get down into the mid-20s here in Central MN.

    Crazy, it's been super warm here and cooled way off today. Brutal north winds. I can imagine how much worse it was up there.
