It’s so cold in the Seattle area that a Port Orchard family sent in a photo of their cat’s water bowl to a local news station. It had frozen overnight with a strange spike of ice sticking out of the top. Ice spikes are created when the surface of the water freezes first. The water underneath causes a crack to form in the top as it also freezes and expands. As that water dribbles out and freezes, an upwards spike is formed. Neat!
