Catching Up: 20091226 Ice Formation

Continuing the catching up series of old weather photographs. Click on any image to see the full size.

This ice formation was in my back yard. It’s created when water creeps up from the ground and then freezes when contacting the air. This phenomenon is knows as Needle Ice and it’s pretty damn cool. It pushed up dirt and small rocks. To this day it has not happened again in my back yard.
