House glides across ice on White Bear Lake

A 60-ton house was rolled across a stretch of lake ice this morning in the east metro, leaving behind a few cracks but disappointing any of the onlookers who may have been secretly hoping to see a frigid splash of historic proportions.

A few hours before the move, Semple acknowledged having never tried such a project before, but, “We were able to get some insurance, and now we can try to make a go of it.”

Where else but in Minnesota can you get insurance to slide a house across a lake?
