• My mom: will you go buy a bag of ice
  • My dad: no
  • My mom: I will pay for it and it can sit outside
  • My dad: I have a philosophical opposition to buying ice in this weather
  • My mom: I had a philosophical opposition to marrying you and I've lived with that decision for 26 years

Would call most of those sun halos, sun dogs, and a circumzenithal arc, but my word what a collection of optical phenomena this traveler caught. 


Winter is a busy time for the Department of Awesome Natural Phenomena. This automotive ice formation formed on the front of a Jeep Cherokee parked in the visitor’s lot at the Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, North Carolina. When the jeep pulled out of its spot this awesome ice grille remained attached to the wheel stop.
