Hail in February (from over 7 months ago)

Back on June 22 of last year, I collected and saved a few handfuls of golfball to near-tennis ball sized hail from the Sissonville, WV storm. I've kept it in my freezer in plastic since then. Today, I remembered it was there and decided to take a look - not much left! Sublimation takes its toll over time. I don't know if I'll just let them continue to waste away, or rinse them off and 'ceremonially' use them in a glass of ginger ale. The latter seems more fitting, though I am curious how much longer they'll last.

I guess a sealed container is necessary to preserve ice in the long term. I'll have to make sure I have one ready for next time, if I get another storm like that close enough to home.
