Ice Spike

Introduction: Ice Spike

Grow one in your freezer! Ice spikes happen when surface water freezes, except for a

small hole or crack, where water pushes up thru and freezes into a spike. Spikes 18 feet

tall have been observed in Lake Erie.


Use *distilled water* in your ice cube tray, or try boiling the water and filtering it. This one

grew with plain tap water.   Tried to take better pics, this is as good as I could get.
