I've lived on more than one lake that froze annually. I've never heard of anything like this. Wtf?

That's very impressive, but watch it in action over on the Video tab.

Seriously, that is end of the world shiat. WTF is next after sink holes and lake effect ice? Gravity selectively quits and we have furniture stores burning up in the atmosphere.

Manitoba has more water on its surface than land. It's not really land, per se -- more like a land-locked island surrounded by lakes.

I am not surprised in the slightest.

CBC News also contacted an insurance company in Winnipeg who said generally coverage is not provided for damage to homes caused by shoreline ice build up or water-borne ice.

Wtf is the point of insurance if it doesn't cover you when your house is destroyed. YOU HAD ONE JOB. Fark you, insurance co.

I'm beginning to think that this new trend of videoing everything that happens may not be a good thing.

I don't necessarily need to see ice stalking across a yard and eating a house right before bedtime...or ever...

It's called "break up".  On lakes with enough open water and fetch, it happens often.  It's one of the big reasons not to build right on the open shore.

/Watched a pancake of ice 6 miles wide and about 6-8 inches thick pile up on our shore in a few hours.

Notice how they mention they were glad there wasn't flooding? That's because lakes in Manitoba flood severely every few years, and people rebuild on the same spots anyways. They don't understand that mother nature will fark them over, and she'll do it repeatedly. But maybe they're just into that.

It sounds as if Dauphin Lake had been especially problematic:

I forget the author, but years ago I read a sci-fi short story where the 'weather' report was years, not degrees...so when it dropped into the 70's, lapels got wider; when it dropped into the 'teens, cars started sporting running boards...below that, there were no airplanes, etc...

Isn't it May in Canada or does the have something to do with exchange rates?
