The Weather at Howhill

Photographs - 04 January 2003

I only took the photographs of these natural phenomena, I had no hand in creating them.

Hanging icicle

An icicle, approximately 50mm x 5mm, hanging by a spiders thread. How do you think this icicle formed?

Did the water run down the thread to the lowest point and form the icicle there?

Hanging icicle No. The icicle orginally formed on the roof edge trapping the thread inside. During a subsequent thaw the icicle broke free from the roof but was suspended by the thread.

Suspended ice Here is another bit suspended ice. It is a little easier to work out where this odd shaped piece came from. The suspension medium is dry grass.
