One image which I would like to show you, but can't because I only heard about it, is that of the ice on the power lines in the country (the triangle of darkness south of Montreal) during the ice storm. I was told that over the course of 4 days, the icicles formed four times. The metal lines twisted around as the air heated up and cooled down, so that-according to his eye-witness account-the icicles made 4 rows on the wires, one hanging down, another facing up and two facing out to each side.
