“What’s up” with my ice

foodonastump

Morning mystery: I opened my freezer only to find two ice cubes reaching for the stars. How and why? Nothing was on top of the trays and they were right where they always are:

FOAS - I've never seen that before but then my fridge has a built in ice maker.

This link should answer your question.

Thanks LJ! I guess that explains it. I’ve never seen it so it seems strange that I got two in the same night. As for the ice maker, yeah, one of these days I’ll figure out why that ice tastes awful.

They are stalagmites....of ice. Something above is dripping.
Note the rings showing formation.

OT, but I'm wondering....FOAS, are you the one who refurbished a fantastic coffee maker/espresso machine?

That time lapse was interesting! I've seen some weird ice formations, but in the woods after a storm, not in my refrigerator. I made ice in trays in two refrigerators (kitchen, garage) for many years. And finally had my plumber run a line to the ice maker in my last refrigerator a few years ago. Yes, I know, but old habits die hard ;0)
