or 2:05 in the video)

Note that physics-wise, there is nothing directly pushing the ice inshore.
Wind that could push a wall of slush would be much more dire to witness,
akin to having a hurricane-type bulldozer shove everything visible aside.
Simple answer, barometric pressure-pumped supercooled water veins.

Several boathouses on the eastern shore of Lake Winnebago are damaged from
ice shoves and it could get worse this weekend.

(Note? that these are not creeping up the frozen shoreline because the
ground is frozen solid, which is very much different from the warm ground in
Darla Johnson's video)

What Darla Johnson captured on video was a VERY RARE occurrence of ice
forming in a unique set of conditions. Unfrozen ground, liquid supercooled
water, and high? wind pressures to pump it up the shoreline.

Video shot by Brett Petrie of Appleton shows just how fast moving the wall
of ice can be. Petrie and his brother Brandon shot the video at their
grandparents' home in the Town of Taycheedah.

"The crushing sound from the wood, all you heard was the snapping and you
couldn't even imagine how many different sounds were going on when it
happened," Petrie said.

People who live along the lakeshore say there is no stopping the massive
wall of ice, you can see how it broke through this boathouse door leaving it
in pieces as the ice continues its march inside.

"It happens fast," said Michels.

"All these piles were here just in the day time, I couldn't believe how
quickly it changed," said Julie Petrie of De Pere.

The Petries say in a span of about 30 minutes the ice reached shore and
broke through several boathouses. They say right now the contents can be
saved, but they are worried what the wind will do this weekend.
