The Big (de)-Freeze - #857

Big dump of sloppy snow and freezing rain on Saturday night and now the big Melt has set in.

Except that none of the liquid stuff was going down one of the downpipes at the back of the house, but rather over the guttering.

Investigation uncovered a perfectly cylindrical, 6 foot high ice sculpture hidden within the pipe, the result of the confluence of a bird's nest , copious amounts of fluid and Arctic temperatures.

Either that, or a decent sized chunk of ice for a bucket of gin and tonic....

Well, a chip off the old block might work!
