Videos: Ice shoves on Lake Winnebago

Strong northwest winds that ushered in this latest Arctic blast tore up the ice on southern Lake Winnebago, forcing massive piles of shattered ice chunks ashore near Brothertown and along the southeast shores.

Along the shoreline, ice shoves reaching 12 feet or more thrust up against the banks, tearing up trees, shrubs, as well as a few docks and other structures near Brothertown in Calumet County.

The force of the winds, which gusted over 40 mph as the cold front moved through, can be seen in the size of the giant ice chunks that were forced dozens of yards inland, piling on top of each other in an incredible display of Mother Nature's wrath.

Chunks of ice the size of automobiles were shoved ashore by the strength of the winds and the sheer momentum of the moving ice. The thickness of the ice, 12 inches or more in places, and the distance these floes traveled inland, shows the incredible force of the arriving front.
