OLCOTT, NY - The freezing along Lake Ontario in Olcott is a sight to see, and something that long-time residents of Olcott say they don't see every year.
There are hills of ice along the shoreline right outside a row of waterfront homes on West Bluff in Olcott.
We call them ice banks on the Beach, we had signs from the City warning people to stay off of them and they called them ice mounds. Always thought that they gave great protection from erosion and maybe added some lost sand each year we hsd them.
I guess something new to the south shore around Olcott.

Checked the water level today I still don't see much change with all the added rain and melting snow.

This is the Chief from the Rescue Unit standing on the edge of the ice bank during a winter exercise, he is about a half mile out in the lake.
