The winter storm brought a combination of cold temperatures, gale-force winds and 10- to 18-foot swells off the shoreline along Lake Erie, causing the houses to become covered in ice, WGRZ reported.

Homeowner Ed Mis told WGRZ he had never seen conditions so bad and is concerned about where the ice will go when it inevitably melts.
