March 13 (UPI) -- A western New York home on the shore of Lake Ontario is completely encased in ice after to five days of strong winds.

Twitter user @john_kucko shared photos and video on the social media site showing the house completely encased in ice Sunday after being bombarded with five days of strong winds off Lake Ontario in freezing temperatures.
