45-Foot Icicle Grows in Front Yard of Home in Illinois

When Mother Nature decorates your house with icicles their size is limited by how high your roof is. An Illinois family has a 45-foot-tall icicle, but this one's in a tree in their front yard.

Katherine Ragel of St. Elmo in south-central Illinois' Fayette County says she's worried there might be an accident because passing traffic sometimes will "stop in the middle of the road."




Ragel's son, Garrick Moreland, made the icicle. The tree trimmer climbed into one of Ragel's trees with a hose and turned on the water when temperatures dropped a few weeks ago. The icicle kept growing.

The Effingham Daily News reported the idea originally came from Ragel's late husband, Alan Ragel, who liked to build smaller icicles along the driveway.

St. Elmo is about 20 miles southwest of Effingham on Interstate 70.
