Now here's a driving challenge: Falling icicles!
It's enough to drive on mountain passes when it's snowy - but how about when it could "rain" icicles?  Water routinely seeps through the rocks as you pass through tunnels on SR-20 east of Newhalem, but the WSDOT says in periods like this when it's far below freezing, those drips of water turn into dangerous icicles.

Here are some photos from the WSDOT.
