Last night was World Wildlife Fund's Earth Hour and at 8:30 I put out the ice luminary Jeni made way last winter. We took a class at the Linden Hills Co-op and made a sample one in the downstairs freezer. Then I waited and waited for a good old fashioned Minnesota winter to make some more.
So tonight, in honor of earth hour, and to clear out the freezer I put out our only ice luminary. I finally used the special drill bit I bought just to make a chimney in the ice globe. The luminary was really pretty and I think that making one in the freezer for use on special occasions is a great idea. So what if it is warm. Last night it was lit at 8:30 and I showed it to Jim at midnight and it was still looking good. Sometime in the middle of the night it melted and burned out. Nothing lasts forever, so I enjoyed it while it was there.
Here is a video made about midnight. The hole in the top was originally less than an inch so it has melted a lot but it doesn't make it less beautiful. Thanks Jeni.
