One year ago, the IceCube collaboration released the surprising results of a search for ultrahigh energy neutrinos to an audience at Neutrino 2012 in Kyoto: two events survived the background cuts. These events do not appear to be a result of the GZK neutrino production mechanism, but nevertheless clearly stand out from terrestrial neutrino backgrounds. In the ensuing months, the collaboration has developed a novel analysis sensitive to events of the genre discovered. When the box was opened, 26 more events appeared with overall characteristics different from all known terrestrial backgrounds. The IceCube detector and the mysterious new events will be discussed as well as future plans for neutrino astrophysics at the South Pole site.
