Wednesday, December 2, 2015, 3:47 PM - An ice storm stretching from New Mexico through West Texas and Oklahoma and up to Kansas City over the weekend left tens of thousands of people without power and played a role in at least four deaths on icy roads in Kansas.

The conditions led to traffic delays, making it difficult to get around during the U.S. Thanksgiving weekend.

A photo of a speed limit sign in Mustang, Oklahoma taken in the aftermath of the storm has gone viral. The sign was coated in a thin layer of ice during the storm. As it slipped away a perfect, ice-encased replica appeared.

The image was uploaded to Twitter by user @bbatter on Sunday.

This isn't the first time photos of an ice imprint have gone viral. Last February, a peculiar ice sculpture found in a North Carolina parking lot garnered thousands of shares on social media.

The photos featured a near-perfect ice impression of the front of a Jeep:

The working theory is the owner left the car running to warm up the engine, causing some of the ice on the vehicle to melt. When the driver backed up, a layer of ice detached. It remained upright because part of the ice was attached to the curb.
