'Splain This, Kittens

This afternoon, I made ice. Later, when I opened the freezer, several of the ice cubes looked like the one pictured. Can anyone explain how that happened?

[and if the picture makes no sense, the ice cubes had these little frozen peaks. totally weird]

  1. i think your freezer may be set to too cold a setting and your ice sublimed into the air. i could be way off but i wanted to use the verb form of "sublime"

    AND, this is perfect for your blog, the word verification for this comment is: dvqianus (it's not like uranus, nothing is that big!)

  3. It looks like a huge ice diamond in a velvet case in that pic. Are you asking for Pab's hand in marriage?

  4. Were the frozen peaks sitting above or below the tray level?

  5. marve they were below the tray level. I had filled the tray only about half-full so that it would freeze more quickly [I needed ice for my Manhattan].

    Does this mean you might have an answer?

  7. Actually I had assumed you filled the tray all the way up so I was trying to figure out how in the heck the water had decided to shift around like that. 8)
