I walked outside mid-afternoon one day last week and walked down to get our mail. I came back and fished around in our van for a couple of items and returned to our front entrance way. I turned around to look at something and was momentarily captured by a bit of confusion. There before my eyes was a large icicle hanging in the center of our telephone wires that cross our property to our house.
It was quite a sight! During a brief interruption in cold and snowy weather, New England a day that rose above freezing. This icicle, which originally surrounded the power lines on the corner of our home (top right) broke free and slid down the line. It has since fallen to the ground.
