Ice is a very controversial thing. It can be helpful or it can be an annoyance. When ice is helpful is when it's in cubes cooling a drink or when its crushed in a bag and placed on a sore muscle. When ice is not helpful is when it covers the road in a thick sheet and makes it unsafe to drive. Another time ice is not helpful is when it sleets hard or hails. Today my dad and I took a picture of a huge icicle that was hanging on our roof before breaking it and collecting the pieces.
