Beautiful Ice Coats Trees Branches, Then Turns Into Ice-Projectiles

 Early yesterday, ice coated the branches of this willow tree growing on Cadman Plaza West in Brooklyn Heights, creating a beautiful ice sculpture.

 Each tiny branch was encased in a delicate glass-like sheath.

Around 10 a.m. (as it warmed up), the ice coatings starting plunging to the ground, creating a weird ice-projectile rain. You could hear the hollow arrows of ice clattering as they hit the brittle snow.

What new wonders await us today?
