This would be one of many reasons I wouldn't live North of the United States. Its too cold and then there's this... An 'Ice Tsunami'. The smart kids call it an 'Ice Shove'. They're both scary either way you say it. I'll stick to Hurricanes. This video is insane, and this will make you appreciate the south more after watching this.

Its like a horror movie but instead of fog its shards of ice. They are blaming it on the weather change. It happened not only in Minnesota, but also in Canada. Just a big wall of ice pushing its way onto shore and devouring houses and trees and anything in its way. The other messed up thing is that, NO insurance company covers this.

They said it sounded like a train and some said it sounded like someone breaking tons of glass. In the video below from abc News will explain it all.
