    Ice Formations After Deep Freeze

     
    The day after the arctic cyclone arrived, temperatures slowly climbed out of the negatives and hovered around 4 degrees. With the windchill less dangerous, I ventured out on some local trails (Morgantown, WV) to witness the effects of the storm. Exploring a small stream, which was rapidly frozen at the surface, led to some interesting discoveries. The surface was frozen at least an inch thick in places, with a steady trickle of water running beneath it. Along this stream were several cool formations of ice crystals and trapped bubbles. I was able to photograph several of these, including a ground cluster of a phenomenon known as ice needles.
