in upper 1/3 of CMU wall I have a horizontal crack that opened up at the end of a minimum 7-day cold snap. Temps as low as -5 degrees Fahrenheit. The crack was approximately 1/4 inch wide, and has now closed. does it make sense that this crack could have been caused by frost heave (horizontal force), and has since closed up once the ground began to thaw?
