Frozen Fountain Fun

In a plaza downtown, there are several fountains. The water had been turned off, but not drained from the basins. With all the cold weather, the water had frozen. For Floridians, this is interesting stuff.


We found it funny that not only were there pennies on the bottom, there were pennies sitting on the ice.


And not only that; pennies could be made to stand on their edge in the ice.


Check out the patterns in the ice.

That's the sort of thing we see in the moat ice down here! Only instead of pennies, we have cyanobacteria mats...
