Break-up on the lake

We drove down to the lake today to check out the ice. In late March. the ice starts to break up. 
If you have been following the news, you would know we had 10 tornados touch down here in northeast Wisconsin. Super high winds for days ravaged this part of the state. When winds like that whip across the lake during break up, beautiful, ugly things happen.

The ice starts to pile. Beautiful from a distance.

One problem people find, however, is when the wind is right, sometimes the ice piles onto the shore and takes out docks, decks, and the occasional sun porch. 
Aren't those $500,000 lake lots great?
