Bizaar yet awesome display of Mother Nature being Mother Nature.
Kinda reminds me of a Chia Plant growing after you water it....cool!

WTF?! I googled "ice needles" and found this:
The phenomenon occurs when the water is above freezing (obviously) but the surrounding air is below freezing. The liquid water is pushed out by its internal pressure and then instantly freezes. There are also some very cool images of "frost beard" http://goo.gl/z0P9Q and "frost flowers" http://goo.gl/wmsoK -- the ice is practically *extruded* into various shapes.
The boy in the t-shirt doesn't seem to be cold though, so it must be something else -- who can give the correct explanation?

More googling: This phenomenon is quite rare, and I haven't found any *scientifi* explanations yet, but here are a few highlights from currents news media:
"Temperatures in the high 70s mixed with strong winds were pushing an ice sheet covering the lake against the shore, creating the effect" (http://goo.gl/GRmUZ) and "the remaining ice is very brittle due to the sun and warm temps, and at some point it reaches the state where ice first crystalizes. The ice then splinters, creating a racket in the process. One viewer emailed Mr. Sebesta claiming that it is known as "chandeleiring ice." Another friend of Jerrid's claims that a similar occurrence happened on the shores of Lake Mille Lacs back in 1994." (http://goo.gl/7ynHy)

#4 "The mysterious phenomenon at Medicine Lake, east Minneapolis, was spotted this weekend as winter temperatures finally broke in the state and the mercury soared to 26C/79F.
Prior to that Minnesotans had just endured freezing weather that had led to the latest thaw of the state's frozen lakes since records began."
Strong winds were pushing the thawing ice onto the shoreline.

correct me if i'm wrong but i think is because of the pressure made by the ice on the surface, the water under pressure by the surface need a lower temperature to stay in liquid state. If the surface broke the water go out and turn ice as it lower its pressure(since the temperature remain lower than the 0°C needed).
It happens me sometimes with the beers or some beverage pulled out from deep-freeze, i open them, some gas come out and..bang... ice -.-
