Frozen Pipe Leads To Icy Cascade

The record cold caused pipes to burst across the mountains.

Amidst the plumbing nightmare, there was one memorable photo opportunity.

A frozen cascade stretches six stories along the side of Sunset Ridge Condominium off Town Mountain Road in Asheville.

Condo resident Matt Vitelli couldn't believe his eyes.
"It's almost like you could ice climb the side of the building," says Vitelli. "I guess woke up to a six story, man-made waterfall. Frozen, ha ha. "

A pipe busted in the sixth floor laundry room, and sometime overnight that stream of water froze along the stairwell.

"Noticed all the ice on the stairwell and I was like, 'Oh that does not look good.'" Vitelli recalls.

It was a dramatic image that gives us a glimpse of a the bone-chilling blast that will go down history.
