With it being so cold for so long this past winter larger chunks of ice were able to form on many water ways. Since it's been warming up of late now that ice is beginning to break up. When the wind starts blowing real hard the ice can actually be propelled along the surface of the water. In many cases these fast moving chunks are ending up along shoreline areas.

This is happening in many places and one of the most severe reports is coming from Lake Superior and the Big Traverse Bay region in the Keweenaw Peninsula. There some of the ice has been moving with such speed there have been reports some of it's actually been crashing into homes.
