Ice so hard I can walk on top of it………… February 8, 2014 · by sarasinart · in Garden/Yard, Shippensburg. · And yet leaves lay on top and melt their way down into the hard crust. Although I hate the cold and ice, mother nature many times surprises us in the midst of whatever she has dished out. Share this:TwitterLike this:Like Loading... Related
That is so cool! I have never seen a leaf do that.
Isn’t that cool? As soon as I saw it, I had to have it recorded and shared. I hadn’t seen it before either, but our ice situation is a little different right now…….
It must be to do something like that! Like you said – nature is full of surprises.
I talked to two of my girls in Ohio this morning and they said the exact same thing: Snow so frozen they can walk on top of it without sinking! Wonder why the leaves sink? Freezing and thawing maybe?
I guess the leaves, just being a natural material laying there, soak up any sun rays etc and melt the surface a layer at a time. I had never seen that before. I hope you didn’t get ice down there.
