It’s no secret that a good bit of the country suffered from extremely cold temperatures over the holiday weekend, resulting in power outages, and tons of people were even trapped inside their own homes as a result of the large amounts of snow and ice.
I’d been hearing all week about how bad it was in upstate New York, but I’ll admit, I had no idea it was this extreme.
These pictures look borderline apocalyptic.
Drone footage and images were taken over the edge of Lake Erie in upstate New York, to give everybody a perspective of just how brutal the conditions were up in that part of the country.
As you can see, the buildings are completely covered by snow.
But, perhaps the wildest part are the massive, gothic looking icicles that can be seen covering doors, windows, and hanging from buildings.
Seriously, it looks like they aren’t even real, and man made for some kind of movie set, leaving a ton of these buildings borderline unrecognizable.
One of those buildings was Hoak’s Lakeshore Restaurant in the Buffalo suburb of Hamburg.
