Ice sculptures

Icicles on barn roofToday was quite frigid too - a maximum of -14°C. When we got up it was -21°C, which is -6°F. Both fires were on again, needless to write.

IcicalagmiteThe melting of snow on the metal roof of the barn has resulted in some lethal-looking icicles, but more interesting were the structures that were created on the ground, where drops of meltwater hit bits of grass that were sticking up out of the snow, and then refroze. I expect there's a technical name for these beautiful, blown-glass-like forms, which probably isn't icicalagmites.
