Daytime temps aren't getting out of the 20s in the foreseeable future so the icicles just keep growing. (Wish I had a bank account like that! ;-D ) I know I should have dug my way out to the front door and began knocking those at the side of the door a couple of days ago, before they got this big.
Now the issue is that it would probably take a sledge hammer to break those up and with all that weight hanging from the gutter the gutters could be dislodged in the process. Parts of me could be dislodged in the process! *sigh*
About the only thing I can hope for is that the ones that now reach the stoop now might actually support the rest due to their pillar-like effect. Decisions. Decisions.
I guess I can take some kind of comfort to know that as far up and down the lane I can see that every other house have ice sculptures like this. Wish I could just send it all to Vancouver where they really need this stuff! :-D
On the brighter side - local stores have put out their seed racks and I've been unable to resist their siren call of Spring.
This year I'm going to grow more herbs so succumbed to pretty packets of herbs, spring greens, bunching onions, an assortment of radishes (although I've never really had luck with them - still, the 14th time may be the charm!), and some hyacinth beans.
Y'all know, too, that the basement plant lab is calling out to me where lay my seeds for wintersowing in jugs as well as seeds to start under lights. Hmmm.
Tempting, but not an overpowering urge yet....
