     I have no idea what caused these, but last night we had sheet icicles all around town. I only have pictures of the ones at the house, but they were all over, on every metal or ridged roof.

     Not the long pointy ones that everyone is used to seeing, but what I’m calling, for lack of a better phrase, sheet icicles. It’s like the snow started to slide off the roof, but before froze in the last possible instant. Then they decided to form more usual icicles from their ends.

     Doesn’t it look like something out of the Day After Tomorrow? These are taken standing under the eaves of the shed looking at the underside of the icicles.  They curl in towards the wall.

     Has anyone see anything like this before, or even better, know what caused it?
