I’ve been noticing them since last week, ever since we had those days warm enough to walk around without a coat on. The snow began to melt in the 40 degree weather and the warming spring-like sun. Then over night it would freeze again, until a couple of days later and more warm weather and sunshine. With each melt and freeze the snow sculpture became more prominent. I’ve been watching the snow and ice, caught in mid slide, cantilevered off the edges of roofs. I know they are perfectly balanced, because if they weren’t they would have already fallen. Mother Nature doesn’t use formulas to perform such architectural feats.
But only today did I notice this snow sculpture on the side of the road. And I didn’t see the rest of them (which are right outside the front door) until I started searching.
