The past couple days have given us some strange winter weather. In the very recent days it has snowed, rained, wintry mix, back to snow, freezing rain, and then a last gasp of snow.
It seems as though one of winter’s picturesque images is that of icicles dangling from roofs. They twinkle in the sunlight and are an iconic image of winter. Many of us as kids vividly remember breaking off an icicle and licking on it as though it were a Popsicle.
