Ice in the ‘hood
Posted by Callan Bentley
Some ice seen this morning, the coldest we’ve yet experienced at our home in the Fort Valley… 4° F when we got up this morning, with windchill around -15° F.
Frost nucleated on a “petal” from a tulip tree (Liriodendron tulipifera):
Frost on grass (note the different habit of the ice crystals here):
Frost on some netting:
Frost on some plant stems near a little creek on our land:
Ice accumulated on leaves and sticks in the creek:
Lastly, I went outside and blew some bubbles with a bubble wand, then caught them and watched them freeze into delicate little bags of ice:
A nice cold day. I love it!
