Spring Messenger

My yesterday's photo (of icicles) for some reason made you think that it's extremely cold over here. But, in fact, icicle is an attribute of coming spring: when sun begin actually heating (comparatively, of course), snow on roofs start melting and dropping down. As the air get colder with sunset, those melt-water drops get frozen on their way down. Besides, air is never as warm as a roof so it takes a while before an icicle get entirely melted, and when the temperature is slightly over freezing you can see icicle 'crying'.
