Icicles.



This is the underside of our back steps. The gutters and drainpipes must be frozen. As the snow on the roof starts to melt it is running over the top of the gutters. We have a trim of icicles all along the gutters. And when they drip at midday they wet the back steps, which now are a solid block of ice. No going up or down them! The view from below the stairs is incredible. So many icicles, they remind me of stalagtites in caves.

Yikes, don't stand under those gutters or below the stairs.

Beautiful to see your winter wonderland.

Could use some nice warm weather to get rid of all this cold stuff.
Went out today and took pics of a frozen cliffside, all icicles, I think water must come from a spring in the hillside. I am going to post this on my blog

Hyde DP's post of Jan 19th has links to several European DPs reporting on the storm that affected us.

Today is bitterly cold but nothing like the temperatures you reguarly endure.

I remember icicles from my youth but we don't see too many these days.

Looks like something out of the Chronicles of Narnia.
