Sunset at Philadelphia's now (in)famous ice castle. Formerly the Locust Medical Center, the building was destroyed by an unexplained fire in the early morning. Due to the frigid temperatures the water used by the firefighters froze almost immediately, encasing the entire area in a block of ice. Thankfully no one was injured. Certainly gives you more of an appreciation for what firefighters endure. Learn more about the ice house here,
