Saint of the Day: Sts Cosmas and Damian

Braced for the blizzard? Count your blessings. You could live here.

You could be dealing with this:

This house encased in snow and ice up to 7 inches thick may look fake, but photographer John Kucko assures his social media followers it’s anything but. The beach home in Webster, New York, about 5 miles from Rochester, is located in a “very remote” area near the shoreline of Lake Ontario. In the spring and summer, it’s a weekend getaway; but when it comes to winter, it’s more of a hazard than anything else. Kucko said he frequently visits the spot to shoot sunsets year-round. But when he stopped by the secluded spot on Sunday, he couldn’t believe his eyes.

Here in New York City, meanwhile, the predicted two feet of snow has dwindled to a few inches of ice and slush.

Meh.
