We had an ice spike today! What’s an ice spike? It …
is an ice formation, often in the shape of an inverted icicle, that projects upwards from the surface of a body of frozen water
Well – we’d never heard of ice spikes either, and it had us completely baffled for a bit. I was going down the line of aliens and pixies (naturally), but Caerthan found this article on Wikipedia, if you’re interested.
It’s a bit technical in places, but at least it makes a game attempt to keep things in the realm of science, even though they admit to not really knowing.
Putting aside aliens, pixies, and science, I just thought it was very beautiful and feel privileged to have an ice spike at Pistyll Gwyn.
