My brother went outside suddenly this afternoon and I wondered where he was, until I heard the chopping and stomping on the roof, and the glass-like tinkling sound of breaking ice. I didn't realize it was that bad.

We do have icicles hanging from the eaves here and there.

But then he came in with a four foot long dagger.

from Wikipedia -

"Any material which is soluble, can be deposited as a colloid, or is in suspension, or is capable of being melted, may form a stalactite."

  2. Wow!!! The other day I say an icicle "fence" that someone had made by sticking icicles in the snow around their house. It was so pretty. ♥
