Thanks Dave. It took a lot of shots, and I had to make them very close together in the gif, to make it 'fluid,' :) (aren't I punny)

I didn't notice before, but the icicle 'jumps' when the drop lets go.

Thank you Charlotte and Heidrun. Charlotte let's hope this changes quickly. It almost seems that your area and mine have traded places.

Terrific GIF !
Your temps are definitely not what was considered up to now NORMAL. That the patterns are changing is very probable -and that very likely pretty much all over the globe !
Stay safe and don`t drive on your hazardous ice !
Last but not least - CONGRATULATIONS on your AC !!!

well if this is the change to come New Orleans is in a mess with all those long bridges 26 miles long & elevated roads 30 miles long. Oh well just add that to the rising oceans & sinking land.

Thank you mrwing13, Eileen, Susan and Charlotte! Fun to compare our 'samenesses' and our differences. Our winter is more like yours Susan, when we have an extreme warm spell.

Wish we could get the weather patterns to change back to 'normal,' even -60 would feel downright welcome. This has got us... nervous about global changing patters; are they a fluke or is this a portent of things to come.

Katy!!! I am getting such a "kick" out of seeing shots I've done over the years coming from TOK, where there SHOULD NOT BE any icicles, let alone MELTING icicles at all!! of course mine were just photos, not your terrific gif's..love it!! but I hope things get back to "normal" for you up there in the Arctic!!! I'll send you some of our subzero temps in exchange for your 40 degrees.. :)
