New York Homes Become ‘IGLOOS’ After Ice Blast Sends Temperatures Plummeting

It was snow joke for New York residents who awoke to homes swathed in Narnia-like icicles. The igloos were created after “48 hours of battering wind off Lake Erie formed an otherworldly scene south of Buffalo”, said veteran TV anchor John Kucko.

Residents in parts of upstate New York were digging out from two feet or more of snow, ahead of additional snowfall. And temperatures plunged below zero.

Blowing snow has fallen around the state, though the heaviest snowfall was concentrated in largely rural areas east of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, reported the Associated Press. Houses along Hoover Beach were covered by ice from high winds and from the waves from Lake Erie.

Kucko shared photos of the iced-up properties on Twitter, and said:

“Welcome to Narnia.”
