Take a last look. The long, cold winter left plenty of ice on Lake Erie but it's quickly melting leaving chunks of ice, known as "lakebergs" making their way from the lake towards Nigara Falls.

Meteorologist Andy Parker with WKYC Gannett sister-station, WGRZ, took a kayak into the ice flow to get up close to the chunks of ice as they empty from Lake Erie into the mouth of the Niagara River. Some of the bergs are as big as cars and in some cases, small houses.

The bergs will eventually plummet over the falls.
