What do you do when the temperature doesn't get above freezing for about nine months? Why, you spray water out of a few pipes 24 hours a day and see what happens.
I saw something like this in a state park in western New York a few years ago. There was a fountain the park service didn't turn off. Just kept growing and growing, but since there was only one pipe, and it pointed straight up, what you got was a single, ribbed column about 20-30 feet tall. With water shooting out the top. The resulting metaphor is left as an exercise to the reader.Posted by ryan at February 25, 2005 10:45 AM
