I used to live near Mammoth Cave, Kentucky.  On cave tours, the guides would explain about the stalactites and the stalagmites, rock-like formations that are formed by mineral-laden water dripping from the "ceiling" of the cave to the floor.  The stalactites were the ones hanging from the ceiling -- like icicles hanging from the edge of a roof -- and the stalagmites "grew" from water that dripped onto the floor.  After eons, they would grow together and form pillars.  Looks like you have ice "stalagmites there!
