The ice covering the houses is up to 3 feet thick.

Interesting that the house to the right is not covered in ice. Maybe this is how the wind blew and that other house also has the front and right wall covered in ice, but the back left (and maybe back?) are less affected?

Maybe the house on the right is poorly insulated, and the outside of the walls melts the ice?

It's only the front facing wall this is covered in ice - see this pic at a slightly different angle - the right side of the house has no ice toward the rear:

This is about 3 miles down the road from my house. Lake Erie didn't freeze and we had some very cold temperatures with high winds. They are in a low spot right on the lake. It usually happens a couple times in the winter but not this bad. About 1/2 mile down the road I went into Lake Erie in December doing my first Polar Plunge to help raise money for the Special Olympics.
Check out Hoak's Lakeshore Restaurant ice on google images. A few years ago someone left their car parked there.

That can't be good, structurally for the house.

What makes it even more ominous is the color. Pollution?

It's not as bad as a slow moving wall of ice blowing off a lake.

Possibly, but check out the triangular wall on the left side of the upstairs above the roof- totally ice free, but not immediately obvious because the house is painted the same dull putty color as the ice itself.

Geesh. All the more reason to NOT live closed to a large body of water. Folks living lakeside here in NE Ohio are losing their back yards by the yard.. winter storms, no ice, and high water means erosion has been heavy.

Is that a recent photo? I think I've seen it a few years ago.

Maybe it was the same house, different year, same results.

Down here people with waterfront property on rivers will usually build "sea walls", retaining walls that extend only a foot or two above the water line which are then backfilled on the land side to prevent erosion. They're usually made of either old railroad cross-ties or poured cement, or less commonly interlocking sections of metal. The cross-ties are usually the cheapest option but the spaces between them tend to harbor snakes, so cement is preferred if it can be afforded. Is this something that isn't done in colder areas?

I'm getting deja vu.
Was this posted here before within the past year? I STF'd and came up empty. I'm almost positive I saw this before. The pic is too familiar. Not days or weeks ago. A few months or a year ago.

I think it would take a lot of interior heat to keep ice from forming.

There is some on that house, but I bet it's being in the wind shadow, as it were, of the larger house on the left.

I'd wonder about accumulative damage, especially to the roof.

One creak at night, and I'd be out of there until the spring thaw.
