Weird weather yields unique ice formations (Weekly Photo Challenge)

It has been another weird weather year so far here in Northern New England. Chances are, it has been weird where you are too. We’ve had wild temperature swings causing freezing and thawing and refreezing in the rivers and streams. An 8 day cold snap mid-month finally froze the big lakes solid and then our light snow cover was completely washed away on January 31st when we had torrential downpours and temperatures were just shy of 60 degrees. Temperatures then dropped to colder than average freezing things back up including the puddles of rain that were everywhere. This means that the ice formations are quite beautiful this year. Here are a few.
