Gusty winds and high lake waves came together to cover one lakefront restaurant in ice.

The water along Lake Erie swelled to almost record levels allowing the waves to come crashing over the barriers and with the flash freeze we got over the weekend, the water and cold won as one restaurant was turned into an ice palace.

Check out this video from Twitter that was shot at Hoak's restaurant which is located on Route 5 in Hamburg, which is right along the lake shore.

If that restaurant looks familiar, it is because that is where the same thing happened to a car in their parking lot back in 2016.

Also, the wind brought down the roof of a gas station in Lackawanna, New York.

Officials across the region are urging people to stay inside and at home until the storm passes.
