Thaw ?


Could somebody please confirm that icicles mean thaw?

Snow on the roof turning mushy, 
water forms in droplets,
runs down the tiles into the gutter.
The leaky gutter
drips
drops
which turn heavier and heavier with the frost of darkness,
forming icicles.

Logical?

  2. It means thawing. Sadly, it takes them some time to carry on to the end.

  5. Sun heating part of the roof. I'd love a real thaw, but all I get are icicles.

  6. I haven't seen icicles hanging off a roof since I was a kid. I guess the cold just doesn't stick around long enough anymore to make them.
