It blows my mind everytime I see one of these threads. It's just such a common occurance where I live that it amazes me that people are willing to travel here to see them! Honestly, I barely even notice anymore! lol! Anyway, I'm going up to my cabin this weekend in northwestern Ontario. I'll see if I can get some pictures although they do seem to occur more in the fall.
