Ice, ice baby:  NY house encased in ice following storm (PHOTOS, VIDEO)
Footage of a house left completely encased in ice after being battered by water during freezing winds gripping New York state has gone viral.

Local photographer John Kucko captured the stunning footage and photographs of the house completely frozen over on the shores of Lake Ontario.

Some people online are unconvinced of the authenticity of the visuals, though, prompting the photographer to say that he was “amazed at how many people think I sprayed foam on the place, too funny.”

“Many people think the images are photoshopped, they're not. The video underscores that” he added.

Kucko says he was “tipped off by a viewer late yesterday and I was on a mission to find the place before sunrise. Glad I did, what a day!”
