Cabin owners near Alberta Beach, west of Edmonton, came upon a bizarre scene Tuesday.
Around 11:30 p.m. Monday, strong winds sent large ice floes crashing off Lac Ste. Anne, bulldozing through surrounding boat houses and garages.
The ice accumulated into rooftop-high piles of frozen chunks.
As Silvana Benolich reports in the video, the residents are left shovelling out the ice to assess the damage.
