There's a lighthouse in Cleveland, Ohio, that is placed so close to Lake Erie, one of the Great Lakes of the Midwest, that a wonderful weather phenomena takes place.
During the winter of 2010, the lighthouse was sprayed so many times with water from the lake that it froze into a giant sculpture designed and built by Mother Nature. The ice has built up layer by layer.
The lighthouse is completely encased in ice and drawing visitors from all over the state having been featured in the Washington Post and other national newspapers.
"Days of unrelenting gale force winds which began on December 13 churned up white caps on Lake Erie," a local broadcasting station explained. "Those monster waves crashed across the Cleveland Harbor breakwall and West Pier lighthouse."
The ice has brought more attention to the lighthouse than it has seen in decades. It hasn't been occupied since 1965.
