During the Christmas season, many people decorate their houses with lights designed to simulate icicles. Well, here is what the real thing looks like. We have about two feet of snow on the ground and temperatures have not been above freezing for a week or more. This ice forms as the warmth of the roof of the house from the heating inside melts the snow and it then freezes before it can reach the ground. During the winter here in Provo, the temperature varies and often goes well above freezing for days at a time and so all the icicles melt. This is the second round of icicles so far this winter.
