Ice is really piling up around Lake Winnebago in Wisconsin as ice shoves spread beyond the shorelines.

If you're not familiar with ice shoves, they're basically big piles of ice. According to AccuWeather, the phenomenon occurs when temperatures warm up enough to weaken the ice on lakes. Then if winds are strong enough, that ice is blown off the lakes and onto the shore.

As you can see in the video below, it can really pile up:

According to WBAY news, some of the piles around Lake Winnebago are 20 feet high.

It's pretty cool stuff ... unless you have a home or business near where the shoves are accumulating.

The ice can pile up super fast. If there's enough force, it can really do some damage. A Yacht Club in the area had to evacuate and bring in heavy equipment to clear away the ice.
