There are icicles and then there are Canadian icicles! Crews had to use chain saws to remove a 3-story tall icicle from an apartment building in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

The columns of ice formed on the side of the building where it seems someone wasn't paying enough attention to snow melting off the roof. |

It even gained a few fans online when someone created a "Giant Icicle" Twitter account.

But the local fire department didn't want it around. Crews removed the ice over the weekend because it posed a safety hazard to pedestrians and a neighboring building.
