Just when I thought I couldn't take another day of snow & winter
I wake-up and look out the window to find
the trees covered in beautiful crystals
Hoarfrost is similar to the dew on a summer morning. The dew freezes on everything it collects upon, forming beautiful feather-like crystals. Heavy fog is almost always present on these rare winter mornings. After the fog clears it exposes an astonishingly blue sky which makes the white frost stand out so beautifully.
It truly is a sight to behold!
Join me on my morning walk
take in this occurrence that happens just a few times each winter...
Even frosty has hoarfrost on his twiggy arms. Gotta love the life jacket frosty has tucked under his arm.
Even Frosty is thinking summer time & swimming!

A few lonesome fish houses & one of the 3 small islands on our lake. My kids always told me there are deer that live on the islands when they'd come home from a day on the lake...do deer really swim??? Or were my kids trying to see just how gullible their mom really was??
"We deliver in Rain, Sleet or Snow...

I'm pretty certain he is thinking the same thought as I...
"wish it would warm up & real soon-like"
Keep warm & enjoy the weekend,
