A water feature built at a south Lake Whatcom home became an ice sculpture when temperatures dropped below freezing this past week.
Herald reader Tony Kesslau sent a photo taken Thursday, Dec. 5 of a frozen waterfall at a home at the south end of Lake Whatcom.
The frozen waterfall, built by Kesslau Construction of Bellingham and Turnstone Construction of Seattle, does not typically create any problems for the homeowner because the water shuts offs when it freezes, according to Kesslau.
Temperatures began dropping below freezing last week, but the National Weather Service says the change begins Monday, Dec. 9 in Western Washington with warmer, moist air riding over the cold air mass. That could result in snow, but accumulations should be less than an inch.
Freezing drizzle is possible Tuesday before turning to light rain. High temperatures should rise into the 40s with lows in the 30s, according to the weather service.
