The wrath of Mother Nature knocked down trees and power lines, leaving thousands in the dark across central New York. The winds were so strong, ice on Oneida Lake was pushed onto shore in Sylvan Beach.

John Ready of Oneida caught the power of Mother Nature in the video above and captured the storm rolling in off the lake.

If winds as strong as 60 MPH weren't bad enough, snow caused white out conditions in some parts of central New York. It was a rough ride home for Nicole Lampman who dodged a down tree before driving through a blizzard in Boonville.

National Grid continues to work at restoring power to thousands still in the dark. See when yours will be back on and watch one telephone pole on Route 26 in Rome sway like a tree.

Central New Yorkers have seen dented cars, broken fences and downed trees.

Cathy Abel: The neighbors canopy blew to our yard & dented our car.
Dawn Wyant-Smith: No power for us in Bouckville. Hubby just saw a roof come off on way home between here & Hamilton.
Marlene Eaton: In our yard we have a swing set split into 3 a trampoline twisted and steel off the garage roof.
