All my life I have lived within
a half hour drive from the coast,
Therefore I have never experienced the extremes
of inland climates or the cold associated with altitude
Single digit temperatures is noteworthy
and snow in the high country, has been making
news all of October and November.
This definitely one of those noteworthy cold days.
Whilst having breakfast one July morning
in the winter of 2007 I notice water running
over the edge of the gutter for a few seconds.
A few days later a similar occurrence.
This time armed with camera and ladder
I discover this river of ice which had formed a
horizontal icicle out to the edge of the spouting/gutter.
I have never seen this happen again.
