Perhaps some will think these photos of an ice covered house are the definition of a Canadian winter! While that’s not true for most parts of Canada (yes, even the cold parts), clearly this shows that it can happen!

But one must wonder: how does the ice on the house accumulate into such a thick layer!? Especially when you see the house next door stands completely void of any kind of ice. In reality, this ice encased home is probably a summer house left vacant over the winter, and may have had some waves crash up against it from the nearby lake (as seen in the second photo).

This is one good reason to not build that perfect waterfront home too close to the waterfront!
