So

The ice sheet is slowly sliding off the roof and the icicles are sticking out horizontally? Amazing, don't think I've seen the like. May also be the reason I moved out of New England;-)

I think this is where Mickey's RAMU idea came from.

Notice the steal bars of the wind chime (The beam) . The horizontal icicles resemble the strings inside the piano. The beast lives! :-)

that's Washington Co., Vt

It's your crossstate neighbor, gonzo

and yes, the icicles grow down, then get turned sideways, and
stick into the side of the cabin, and, well, winter is FUN FUN FUN!

It's a cozy little love shack, if you can keep the pipes from freezing.

When all the ice and snow slid off the tin roof, it sounded like a huge multi colored bird with
John Goodman's face landing on the cabin.

I used to have

An outdoor well house in where I lived in central Maine, housing the pump. In the '70s, we kept it warm in the winter with a couple of 100 watt lightbulbs burning night and day. Unfortunately, despite my routine schedule of light bulb replacement, there were always the days when they'd burn out, the pipes and/or pump would freeze, and I'd spend hours scrunched down in that tiny space with my implements of destruction (hair dryers, toaster ovens, anything that would pump heat without catching me on fire in the process) for hours trying to thaw the pipes. One time the pipes froze on a day that it rained! I'll never forget that one!

NOT the good old days...

VT! Should have known...

... as we are all freezing at -11 this morning. I thought sure this was the high Cascades in Washington state, in the real Bigfoot county.

Y'all got to come to Vt. in winter, the proverbial witch's tit.

Thanks for the pic Free, nothing like home!

I love that picture

Reminds me of my grandma's old cabin in the mnts of Colorado.. literally freezing your butt off doing your business in the out house.
