snow art

more spring snow this morning, heavy wet stuff that clung to everything, including piling up on the top of the monkey bars outside my window at work. when snow quickly changed to rain, as it does in spring here, accumulated snow started to slide off spots in big soggy messes. but look what it did here. from a scientific standpoint, i can't even figure out how this could happen. but it ran the entire length of both parallel bars - and surely was interesting to look at during lunch at the window!

THAT is nature's art for sure! Just beautiful and who would have evenbelieved it if YOU hadn't snapped a photo as proof?

That is fascinating. You need to post that on a Science Teachers forum and see if they can explain the pattern!
