I was up at the farm last weekend and the Hoar Frost was amazing. I was so happy I had the camera with me. Initially it seemed a waste because it was such a grey day. It got greyer as I drove up the escarpment. There is often a 3 to 10 degree difference from the city to the country, where the farm is. When I get to the farm there could be black ice and snow.
Alongside the road, the woods and farms looked spooky in the fog. By the time I turned off the highway the temperature had plummeted to create the hoar-frost. Our car has a temp read-out of the ground. It was +2C in town, 0C on the highway and -5C on the side road.
In the photos with the ‘fog’ – the frost is disappearing into the air – this was over so quickly – I am glad I wasn’t late for lunch. . Once at the farm I bundled up my Chihuahua and took her and my parent’s collie for a walk. Dali always has a good time but damp cold and snow aren’t a Chihuahua’s favourite. When we turned around to walk home she was charged and that excited Adam the collie – who in turn hoped they would play. Dali was up for a race but not a wrestle!
