Winter Wonderland

Post  ander217 on 2/11/2011, 8:41 am

With this scene outside my window yesterday morning, spring seems farther away than ever. Apparently we had freezing fog the night before which turned our morning world into a fairyland.

(Thanks to hubby who darted outside in his longjohns and moccasins to snap this photo for me in 5 degree weather before the sun hit it and destroyed it.)

THAT is awesome. Hoar Frost is pretty cool! But that looks more like rime. Very Happy

Only somebody who lives in New England can tell the difference between Rime frost and Hoar Frost. I had forgotten about the term, now I know about hurricane categories. Now that I think about it, perhaps I was better off knowing more terms for too cold.

Thanks for the information. I had no idea frost could cause these formations.

It was beautiful, but once the sun hit it, it seemed to just evaporate. This was a Queen Anne's lace plant and as you can see the frost crystals on it were huge. (At least to my Upper South mind.)
