Yes, this is an icicle. Just one. It appeared in our birdbath a couple days ago the morning after a rain (yes...it actually rained here in the Desert Southeast). No, the picture isn't upside down. You can tell by the "deer" in the background, actually our weim Pearl. If you look closely, it almost looks like it has a head and shoulders (OMG...a Virgin M?, tongue firmly embedded in cheek). This happened I'm sure there is a perfectly logical explanation for this phenom. The temp that night took a steep dive...say a 15 degree drop in the time it took us to walk the dogs around 10ish. But just one stalicemite? Freaky.
