Year Of The Icicle

Everyone loves a mid-winter thaw...until this happens! We haven't seen this much ice hanging from roofs and downspouts in a very long time.
As children we would snap off smaller icicles and use them as Popsicles - I can still remember the slightly sandy taste (no worse than drinking out of a stream, I guess).
An ice sword.

More winter beauty - a morning coat of frost that stayed into the afternoon (last weekend).

Birds in a bush feel like spring, even if these little guys don't fly south for the winter, but stick it out with the rest of us.
