I swear, not much more than an hour after I took this photo of the huge icicle hanging off our roof the sun melted it enough it fell and smashed on the ground. Two days before I noticed it hanging there, but I was busy that day, it was cloudy the day after, and I didn't get around to photographing it any sooner. I was just that close to missing it entirely.
Good news, though. Another icicle's forming in the same spot. I'm calling it "Son of Gigantor."
