Icicle Mansion, Part Deux

We have gotten even more snow and ice and stuff. Yuk. As a Floridian (heehee), I am repelled. However, I am also morbidly fascinated by the large icicles hanging off my house. I did at one point attempt to knock them down, but the evil little buggers just fell into a window. I was happy that the window did not break, but I do have a good size hole in the screen now. That ended (most of) my icicle-knocking-down fun. My pride and joy is the icicle which is only about 8 inches from touching the ground — FROM MY ROOF! That’s gotta win a medal or something! πŸ™‚

And so, for your viewing pleasure, I bring you:

And, yes, those are my Christmas lights. I was wondering if they might put out enough heat to start melting the icicles in the front of the house, since it looks like there is ice piling up on the roof a bit, and that can’t be good.

And here is my front door…about 1/4 to 1/3 obscured by the Ice Picks of Doom — obviously, this is not the entrance that I use daily.

Yeah, yeah, my porch light is still orange — from Halloween 2007. I love how there is a little corridor between the house and the Wall of Ice. And aren’t the Christmas lights all pretty and sparkly? πŸ™‚

And finally, my pride and joy, the Big Huge Icicle. I like how these ones in back are a little concave, probably from the wind while they were being formed. πŸ™‚
