Talk about a cool house.

A winter storm iced over homes in upstate New York on Thursday night, leaving the structures under nearly 3-foot sheets of ice in what looked like a winter wonderland Friday morning.

The winter storm brought a combination of cold temperatures, gale-force winds and 10- to 18-foot swells off the shoreline along Lake Erie, causing the houses to become covered in ice, WGRZ reported.

Homeowner Ed Mis told WGRZ he had never seen conditions so bad and is concerned about where the ice will go when it inevitably melts.
