only in Wisconsin.

Let me preface this by saying our HIGH temp Wed. is supposed to be -6 Fahrenheit. (In other words, ice-fishing season is in full swing.)
Runaway ice shanty ties up I-94
By Tom Held of the Journal Sentinel

Jan. 10, 2009 8:47 p.m. | An ice shanty - or the remaining parts of one - slowed up traffic on westbound I-94 near Brookfield for a short time tonight.

The shanty being hauled on a trailer fell onto the highway about 7:20 p.m., according to Waukesha County Sheriff's Lt. Neil Dussault. Several motorists swerved to avoid the runaway hut, but one caught a side of the building and overturned.

Dussault reported that no one was injured in the accident.

Deputies closed the left lane for a time to clear the debris.
