(KMSP) - It looks like a glacier landed in the Bob Schulke’s backyard on the west side of Lake Mille Lacs.

Massive amounts of ice made landfall in a matter of minutes over the weekend. This spring’s ice heaves aren’t as severe as the ones that damaged multiple townhomes last May, but residents are still scrambling to save their properties.

In Schulke’s case, it took just 2 minutes for the ice to move 50 feet from the lake, across his yard, into the back of the house.

"You could just watch it slide," Schulke said. "It was just unbelievable. I've never seen anything like it in my life."

The ice punched a hole in the back of the house and knocked down a pair of posts from the deck.

Homeowners say the ice was done moving by Monday -- but now, they're trying to move it back. 

Gale-force winds piled up the ice along more than 20 miles of shoreline. In most cases, it simply looked imposing -- but it did block Highway 169 near Garrison, Minn. Crews worked to keep the lanes clear as the ice kept encroaching.
