Ice Form

Does anyone know what this is? I took the photo at 6:30 a.m. this morning. It was around 28 degrees F. There's nothing in the water underneath it. It just formed on its own overnight.

This is about an hour later, after the sun came up. It's still 28 degrees but it's starting to melt in the sunlight.

It's that alien from "The Abyss"

Ronald, you make great visual associations.

The squirrels are holding it with two hands and licking it like a popsicle.

I've never seen anything like that! I asked Gary if he knew anything about the physics of water that would cause this, and he does not. But there are always those mystics who talk about water being alive!

I've seen frozen bumps and waves but never anything this tall. It's the oddest thing. Maybe it had something to do with the temp hovering around freezing for so long.

How about that:
