This was taken a couple of weeks ago when we had the hoar frost morning, I’ve since learned that is what it is called…”a grayish-white crystalline deposit of frozen water vapor formed in clear still weather on vegetation, fences, etc.”   Today it was much warmer -5C or 23F and we now have wet slushy roads.  I’ll take a few photos to show you the difference a day can make in the appearance!

  1. Wow, if you say it’s much warmer at -5 degrees, what was the temperature when the pic was taken? It looks really beautiful though. 🙂

    • this photo was taken a few weeks ago, I don’t remember what the temp was on that particular day but a few days ago it was -32C, way too cold for this time of year. We have had an unusually coal winter so for. Thanks….it does look like a winter wonderland at least for a while… 🙂
