(WSTM) It would be a beautiful sight to look at if the potential damage was not so upsetting.
“We’ve never seen anything like this. It’s awful,” said Maureen Whalen.
Maureen Whalen’s camp has been sitting on the shoreline of Lake Ontario for generations.
The home has weathered years of Mother Nature’s abuse, but when Whalen pulled up on Monday and saw feet of ice surrounding her camp, she started to worry.
“When I first pulled in it was so windy, it was hard to get to the front of the camp, but at least the back side of the camp, I knew our camp was in trouble,” said Whalen.
Strong wind created massive waves that pounded the shoreline, inundating the area with water and ice.
On Tuesday, the layer of ice so thick, the roof line of the camp was just a few feet from ground level.
