DSC_0011The last week or so, we have had hoar frost forming in our area. I did a little looking, and hoar frost forms from water vapor, not from liquid water. CalTech has a site with some great basic explanations: SnowCrystals.com which is where I found the definition above. DSC_0052It forms on almost everything, even the snow.DSC_0037I love it.DSC_0051DSC_0053We have sunny weather for the next few days, so most of it will vanish, but it was lovely while it was here.
