The water (snow, ice, etc.) never had a chance to melt and form these things. This formed yesterday and last night, and considering what the temps were predicted to be, I’m betting that it’s not only the first, it’s the last.
It’s a pretty impressive one, and this is at first sun in the morning.
I checked a couple of hours later on, and sure enough, this is what was there:
Good riddance, in my opinion. This has been one rough winter, especially considering the severity of last winter. We don’t deserve two winters in a row, like that!
Let’s hope I’m right … I could use a touch of warmth!
