Ice, Ice Baby

The oohs and the aahs from his friends when my 8-year-old rocked up to school with this lump of ice yesterday gave him Ice Man status for about 3 minutes.  Boy, did he relish those 3 minutes.  The devastation when he realised that he would lose his Ice Man status once the ice melted was clear.  So yes, I carried it home and put it in the freezer!

When I got home, I took time to actually look at the ice; its total transparency, the crystal formations inside, it’s polished and glossy exterior which I have not seen replicated anywhere else in nature.

So, eyes wide today everyone; take note of the normal, it’s probably pretty remarkable!
