Weird Wednesday already? Nope. Huge piles of ice were pushed by NE winds into homes along Linwood Beach (just north of Bay City), forcing evacuations and causing damage. Linwood Beach residents return to find ice piled around, inside and atop their homes from the Bay City Times begins:
“I was making a grocery list in the kitchen and the next thing you know, we had this,” said Angie Hughes, nodding at the ice resting inside her kitchen.
“Once we saw the first two piles of ice coming over the seawall, we just ran,” Steve Hughes said Monday, returning to assess the damage. “I just remember hearing the kitchen window explode and the kitchen table getting thrown back.
“It was just incredible to see. It’s got to be about 50 tons of ice that came up here in less than a few minutes.”
It has some great photos from this latest ice incursion from Saginaw Bay and also from a similar incident in 1946 when Lake Huron ice devastated homes along the bay.
