After last week’s heavy storm, homes along Lake Erie in Hamburg, NY were coated in ice, creating a scene from Frozen or Narnia.
Water from Lake Erie blew ashore, coating houses that lined the beach with water and instantly freezing them to create a Winter Wonderland.
Ice from Lake Erie also coated surrounding trees and landscape.

Homeowners were less than thrilled about the ice covering their homes.
“I actually had to go out a secondary door and then chisel my way back into the house by breaking the ice,” one homeowner told WGRZ.
Instead of a winter wonderland, residents living along the shore of Lake Erie in New York woke up this weekend to a winter nightmare when they found their homes completely encased in thick ice. https://t.co/cGdARdokA3— CNN (@CNN) March 2, 2020
According to WGRZ, the area experienced property damage, downed power lines, and collapsed trees.
While the pictures look like something from a storybook or movie, the people experiencing it first-hand feel more like they’re in a nightmare. The ice weighs heavy on the roofs and natural light from windows is blacked out.
