Doesn't anything over 6 feet constitute a stalactite?

Weatherman still says we're gonna get snow.

I need to find the pics of the icicle that was almost 6 foot around at the top and went from the two story roof to the ground. It was amazing and when it let go, we were glad we were 20 feet away.

Steve said he remembers the icicles on the house when he was back in England

They are so dangerous. You learn very early never to walk near a building. Always walk on the outside of the sidewalk. In the winter when it is a warm day, you see kids walking to school in the street. It is safer there than on the sidewalk. They know the danger. It sure scares the bejesus out of you when one comes crashing down near you.

Lovely, cooling down nicely as Autumn does in the early evening

28 degrees, sunny and calm. Sure beats yesterday when it was 14 degrees (felt like -7 with the wind chill), snowing and blowing. I'm glad the sun came out. I did hear a meadowlark this morning singing, so I know spring is here.

34°F. As the weatherman promised, it started snowing late last night, and continues today. Sigh. My winter aconites are all covered up again, they were so pretty.

We are due to get another storm and snow again tonight, but at least today is sunny.

The sun just now popped out...both cats are recharging their batteries in the window.
