Angler Fish Ice Cube

You know those weird stalagmites that you get on ice cubes sometimes? Or maybe you don't, I don't know--this site says that they form best with distilled water, which is definitely not what we're using, but we do seem to get them fairly frequently. It's just some freak thing.

Anyway, we went to IKEA yesterday and picked up this little tray for making fish-shaped ice cubes. Later we found this in our freezer. Angler Fish!

(It was already melting a little at this point.)

There's a video here of a huge ice spike that formed on somebody's deck.

That is so cool. In more ways than one. :)
