Icy stalactaciousness fail, on my very own roof. That’s all I’m going to say about that.

  1. Wow, that’s a pretty weak icicle. My apt here in Tulsa has these giant monsters that hang down three feet. crazy..

  2. When I was a kid, I called icicles “ice wienies.” Just thought I’d throw that out there.

  3. It’s not unimpressive! It’s extremely impressive how delicate it is. The big ol’ clunkers are easy to get – these little drippy ones need exactly the right situation to form – perfect amounts of melting and no wind.

    Way cool.

  4. The icicle may be weak but the snow ledge it’s hanging off of is pretty good sized.
    Probably won’t last long if someone keeps standing below it. Those things have a tendency to drop on the unwary head to the amusement of others. Then all you can do is the amazing “snow down your back” dance, also to the great amusement of others. 8^D

  5. We have TONS of icicles. My brother and i had fun opening all the windows, leaning out as far as we could, and knocking them down with a broom handle. =)

  6. This poor icicle has a “Little Engine That Could” demeanor. It could grow into a lethal weapon of doom, given a chance!

    Go, little icicle!

  7. I don’t know it seems sort of… daring. sticking it’s thing neck out there like that.

    Bravo, icicle.

  8. Give it some help. Squirt bottle of water in the fridge. Every hour or so go out and give it a shot. Next thing you know you’ll have the worlds most impressive icicle.

  9. Hmm. Usually you only see icicles that small when they’re hunting in packs. The small one gets your attention, while the big ones creep behind you. But surely that’s not…

    …John? Are you still there?

  10. Hey, that gives me an idea. I never had much luck growing dwarf bonsai trees because I don’t have the patience. But I’ll bet I could grow bonsai icicles.

  11. have you ever heard of the saying “big things come in small packages?”

    I would say its small and mighty!!

  12. On behalf of icicles the world round, I take offense to your remark. This icicle is a winner. It’s defying gravity, which is a lot more than I can say for your books on Amazon.

  13. I just want to reassure your icicle that it’s got nothing to be ashamed of. Icicles are, by definition, cold, and cold means shrinkage.
