Also sometimes referred to as "pipkrake". Same idea, though. Wikipedia gives a good basic description: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Needle_i...

I remember that this was pretty common in late autumn when I lived in New England. At this point in the year, the ground was damp and was not frozen yet, and the air was starting to get cold (below freezing) at night. It could sometimes get really thick.

You'll find that all over the southern Appalachians.

I think everyone knows what icicles look like.

Those ice worms are really interesting though!

Next time, why don't you watch your step! You totally went genocide on the ice worms with the giant foot print of yours. Gosh!

I hear you can harvest them and add them to soups and stews. Fat-free, but not a significant source of protein.
