----Please, someone explain this to me: for the second time in a month, there is a strange growth on my ice cubes:
It's a near-verticle sliver extending upwards. I filled the ice cube tray with water (cold water, I think), and put it in the freezer about 2-3 hours ago. I happened to look in and found this, which is similar to one I saw a month ago, though that one wasn't as long.
Here's another view:
The only thing above the tray are some frozen pieces of chicken wrapped in aluminum foil -- well frozen, since I put them in about two days ago. I don't see any drips from them.
As you can see, there is another, smaller growth in the front left of the tray:
What the heck is going on?
