They are almost all gone.
The beautiful icicles, most have fallen by now. I do not remember a year with so many as well as so large. There were ones in the ten to twelve foot range all over the place. The largest I saw was about sixteen feet or so, it was hanging from a two story condo and almost touched the ground … opps I meant snow, there was another two feet or so to the ground. It’s kind of sad but a lot safer with them gone … oh well there’s always next year.

I saw a guy get brained by one before. He was trying to break it loose with a shovel, but he just broke the tip off....then the whole thing fell...heavy end down and smashed him on the bean...laid him out flat on the ground, but he was still conscious."If anybody can draw on the power, where do we put the meter?" - JP Morgan before pulling Tesla funding

I thought this was going to be a tear jerking story about old veterans, or old steam heat boiler guys. Or even Hero commercial airline pilot/real estate investors, but icicles? Who misses icicles?
We had a bunch of icicles after 3 feet of snow in Feb 2010. They are gone, too, but take heart. When the snow cleared, we had bunches of smashed condensers, leaking line sets, and even three 10 ton package units that failed to get out of the way.Jason
