I promised a fellow blogger some icicle photos so here we go. This is my favourite icicle photo from the last week (it was taken Sunday afternoon).
We have a wooden bench by the back door to the house and the inches of snow that had settled on it had slowly started to melt and melt water from the roof was dripping down on it as well. This seemed to make the ideal conditions for forming icicles as they were all over the underneath of the seat. The ones hanging from the diagonal support beams were the best though -- hence the rather odd angle of the photograph. Even if they were nice they were only small icicles (about 3 inches in length, maybe less). For large icicles I had to look elsewhere.
