Here in these early days of changing climate, our concept of winter may need some adjustment. While we're enjoying t-shirt weather in California, south Texas and Florida, other parts of the U.S. are getting hammered by record rain, sleet, and snow. It's a disruptive challenge for the entire country, and we may be dealing with a lot more of it in years to come.
OK, that's the hard news, but one of the good things about winter storms are the visual and sculptural effects of frozen water — ice crystals on windows, icicles on trees and buildings, and blankets of snow airbrushed on the landscape that transform our world into something magical.
Among the most magical of winter's artistic delights are ice castles. Whether naturally occurring where moving water meets freezing cold, or artistically created — ice castles are a yearly attraction in many cold weather climates. On this transmission of Hearts of Space, we search for the sound of frozen water, on a program called ICE CASTLES.
