Watching Lake Ice Slowly Pile Up On Shore Is Soothing

Video: There is beauty to be found when the thermometer drops below freezing, such as the sights and sounds of lake ice cracking and piling up on the shore.

Strong winds and sub-zero temperatures on Lake Superior resulted in massive sheets of thin surface being blown towards the shore for hours. But like a crowded escalator with a passenger who's slow to step off at the end, as the ice hit the shore it had no where to go, so it shattered and quickly turned into mountains of jagged, shimmering crystals.
