Growing up, icicles were the measure of how cold it was after a snowfall. More icicles hanging from the eaves, the colder it was. With more homes having a gutter system, the sight of icicles are fewer. Yet, they are a part that says winter.
The icicles hanging on the holly bush were the prettiest batch of this winter.
With temperatures back to seasonal norms, these icicles are now a memory of when it was bitter cold.
