Went for a walk this morning and managed to take some pictures before the wind became too bitter to tolerate. (note to self: on a day with a strong north wind, don't do the walk around the lake :eek:)

But the wind did make some lovely ice sculptures.

I think that the wind blows the water up onto the branches and slowly they form ice blobs.

that's my scientific explanation anyway. :rolleyes:
