I live in the Minneapolis area, where we have received over 28 inches of snow this month. There is a lot of snow in my yard but this ice is very unique. At one point the lamps were covered with snow, but we have seen some melting even though the temps have been mostly below freezing. Look carefully at all of the photos. The ice is in no way connected to the lamp, post or ribbon. It is all balanced on the two icicles. Nature is marvelous!
After being away for 31 years, we are finally home again. We are South Dakotans through and through, so this is were we want to spend our "retirement" years. My husband and I are getting ready to open a custom woodworking business with me being the paper pusher and the woodworker's apprentice. Along with that I am going to continue quilting and also work as a substitute teacher. Life is good!
