Let it go, let it go...? Homeowners in Hamburg, New York awoke to their very own Disney fairytale - or nightmare - after a brutal ice storm hit the city at the beginning of March.

After two days straight of gale-force winds, residents along Lake Eerie were left with their homes completely covered in icicles, and while the pictures might look magical, I've got a feeling these homeowners aren't too happy right about now...

Both photographs and footage from the storm's aftermath reveal properties completely transformed into the ultimate winter wonderland.

Ed Mis, who has lived in the town for eight years, told CNN that his neighbors were concerned about what would happen to their homes once the ice actually starts melting.

"It's a beautiful sight, but I don't want to live through it again," Mis continued. "It's dark on the inside of my house. It can be a little eerie, a little frightening."

Hamburg's emergency services manager revealed that they'd have to wait for the ice to fully thaw before they could properly evaluate the damage done. Hopefully, it won't have been too detrimental to the city and its citizens...
