WEBSTER, N.Y. -- After five days of freezing temperatures and intense winds, a home in Webster, New York was completely immersed in ice.

Over the weekend, digital journalist John Kucko shared pictures and videos of the Lake Ontario home on social media, prompting thousands of shares, likes and comments.
