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.

The two-story home left White Bear Lake's Manitou Island on dollies with 64 tires and was winched across the 100-yard-wide channel to Matoska Park.

A huge tow truck on the mainland began pulling with a cable the gray wood-frame home shortly after 10 a.m. It made landfall in about 25 minutes as about 100 onlookers gazed at the spectacle under a bright sun on a chilly and windy day.

Secretly I bet there were a few onlookers hoping a Jawa or two would pop out of that thing.

"ootini!"
