It's Just A Drip

John Reeves is dwarfed as he walks by the nearly 150-foot Fox Ice Tower outside Fairbanks.Posted by Hello Photo by John Hagen / Fairbanks Daily News-Miner via The Associated Press. I stumbled on this via That's My Blog!. Apparently a charming Alaska resident (Alaska is one of our states -it's really far up north) decided to leave a fountain on and add pipes to it to extend its height and see how high the towering structure of ice will get this winter. Reading along on That's My Blog!, we learn that this is a bit of common thing in Alaska and clubs actually seem to compete annually for some bragging rights to see who can build the highest structure. There used to be an apartment complex in Denver that did this for a couple of winters, a few years back. But we haven't had a real severe winter in a few years, I doubt the towering ice fountain of doom will not be crafted in the Queen City of the Plains. America - Why I Love her.
