For those of you Northeastern folks in the U.S. (myself included) there’s always some kind storm warning or “big one” every year isn’t there?Â We’re always worried about some major blizzard.Â And don’t get me wrong, we get blizzards.Â But here in Manhattan they only seem to last a day.Â It’s not that I’m complaining.
It’s that other places in the world get it far worse than us.Â Hell, other states in the U.S. get it far worse than us.Â Scratch that, even our own state gets it worse than us!Â Look at Buffalo.Â Are you kidding me?Â You just don’t hear about it because it’s standard.
Well, I highly doubt we’ll have one of these any time soon.Â Back in 2005, the entire Lake Geneva froze over.Â But it wasn’t just the lake.Â The aftermath affected an entire town.

Thanks to Slightly Warped for the info
These pictures were taken by Lake Geneva during the winter of 2005 when the spray of the lake water combined with 100 kilometer per hour winds and subzero temperatures literally froze the lake front solid. According to some reports, boats sank from the weight of the ice and water pipelines on land broke flooding… and eventually freezing entire streets
