Fine Feathered

The humidity and temperature overnight worked together to deposit a feathery coating of hoar frost over the windward sides of branches and fence wires.  Even exposed snow banks were covered in fingernail-sized flakes of frost.  The frost disappeared soon after the sunlight strengthened, but it was a great sight while it lasted.  I’m not a meteorologist, nor do I play one on TV, so I found this blog helpful in differentiating between hoar frost and rime ice.

Enjoy the view.

Not much color these days, but we still enjoy the front vista.
