Learning about ice shoves on Lake Winnebago

OSHKOSH (WLUK) -- "In 40-some years, I've never seen an ice shove in February."

That's what Don Herman of Sunk? Dive and Ice Service told FOX 11's Justin Steinbrinck Thursday morning.

Ice shoves have been common along the western shore of Lake Winnebago over the past few weeks, some reaching incredible heights of 40 feet or more.

Justin set out to learn why ice shoves form, how common are they in Wisconsin, and what sort of damage they can cause.

We are learning all about this odd winter phenomenon with the help of Herman and Bill Wyman, president of The Waters in Oshkosh.
