Winter Wonderland

hoar·frost
ˈhôrˌfrôst/
noun
  1. a grayish-white crystalline deposit of frozen water vapor formed in clear still weather on vegetation, fences, etc.


    We could tell by the strange fog this morning as the sun came up that it was going to be a spectacular hoarfrost morning! 


    The temperature was a frigid cold (maybe -7F?) and the icy fog enveloped us in a dreamscape.


    You don't really see the hoarfrost until the fog clears.....


    and then, as if some magical event has occurred....


    a winter wonderland!


    Somehow the hoarfrost doesn't seem to last very long, but it feels like pure magic when it happens!


    These are the views Johntimothy and I captured independently on our phones as we each 
    drove in to school this morning!
