SASKATOON, Saskatchewan -- If you get lemons, make lemonade. If you get snow...proclaim it "the year of the icicle"

That's what they're calling it in Saskatoon, Canada.

There are giant icicles popping up all over Saskatoon, including a two story giant of the side of an apartment building.

The icicles are creating a buzz on social media, but fire crews aren't sharing the excitement.

They're concerned about the safety hazards about the huge, heavy pieces of ice.

They are warning people to stay away from them. Workers are cutting them down as fast as they can.
