The icicle covered tree was made possible thanks to freezing temperatures and a broken water main at Green Tree Golf Course recently.  
From now on, daylight hours will continue to get longer until the summer solstice returns in mid-June 2017. A wintry image in Victorville has become a sort of tourist attraction, as well as a symbol of the arriving winter solstice. Wednesday, December 21st, marks the winter solstice, where daylight hours start to get longer in the Northern hemisphere. Overnight temperatures recently dipped into the low 20s in the high desert. An ice-covered tree is seen in Victorville. 34.536218
