Wichita Winter Wonderland
This morning, Wichita experienced freezing fog which left a coating of hoarfrost on trees and plants. Enjoy!! (click to enlarge photos)
As Ralphie said when he woke up to hoarfrost in the iconic scene in
A Christmas Story
A closeup of the structure of the ice crystals. That is not frost coating needles on the plant. The frost structure is needle-shaped.
