Is that the devil's icicle?

I wonder, as I look out my window and see that... pitchfork.

Looks more like Satan's opera glove.

So hell has finally frozen over back there?

Looks like a carrot with a French styled tickle thing on the end.

I suggest looking around for more oddly shaped icicles. If there are a few more like that one, then it probably isn't an omen.

Now, if all the icicles on your house looked like that, but the neighbor's were normal, you would be doomed.

That's what you get for voting for Mr. Barely.

I think it looks hopeful, not Satanic. I see it as a hand reaching down to pull you up toward something higher than yourself, while the other icicles offer nothing but a slippery slope downward.

Try again: Hell freezes over at Althouse

P.S.: Merry Christmas!

Hmmm, I'm thinking that maybe, just maybe you are on the naughty list.

MERRY CHRISTMAS to all at Chez Althouse.

Looks like a mandrake root. See if it shrieks when you break it off . . . or merely cries, "I'm mellltingggg...."
