Technically, winter hasn't even begun yet. But that hasn't stopped Mother Nature from dumping some of winter's finest on the Midwest. Some areas, like Michigan, have seen frigid temperatures coupled with ice and snow. Now, buildings, like the St. Joseph Lighthouse, became covered in snow and look like something out of a winter wonderland.
While we all hate the cold, it's hard to hate something that creates such a beautiful sight. The lighthouse is already a popular site to visit. But the recent ice storm has turned it into something else entirely. The Lake Michigan lighthouse is now covered with ice and snow from top to bottom. It even has countless dripping icicles hanging from its walkways and overhangs.
You can get an up close and personal look at the lighthouse by watching this drone video.
It's hard to imagine that there is actually a building underneath all that ice. With the sunset fading in the background, this beautiful structure looks nothing less than an ice-sculpted masterpiece.
If Elsa from Frozen was stopping by Michigan, I'm sure she would quickly take this lighthouse over as her new castle. Tourists from around the country are flocking to the lighthouse to see the rare sight. Locals say they've never seen anything like it before.
