Hoarfrost

Yeah, it sounds like something from Lord of the Rings (and, frankly, it’s been feeling pretty Middle-Earth-ish around here for the last week, so that’s fitting) but it’s actually real weather phenomena where the fog and the frost make my back-yard look like this…

It’s eerily still and beautiful.

Nothing feels quite real.

As far as we can tell, the world ends just past the edges of the farm…

But, really, as far as some of us are concerned, it ends just past the edges of the couch…

  1. Farm Christmas card worthy serene photos Kit. You may get more of that weather frost phenomenon because of Lake moisture, not sure. Yep, sure changes visibility and adds kind of a stillness shell over things….picture pretty

  2. We had the same in mid=Ohio south of you quite a ways… as you said, both eerie and beautiful at the same time. We woke up to ours on Saturday morning… and were very surprised when it lasted all day!

  3. Your cat looks very content on the couch. I love the hoarfrost. It doesn’t happen here in SC. If we get a good cold snap the air is usually very dry. I love seeing the pictures.

  4. Weird, I never knew there was a specific name for this either. And it also is strange how when there’s hoarfrost on the trees, it seems to be particularly quite outside. I guess the hoarfrost keeps the trees from rustling? That probably has something to do with it at least. Like you said, it just makes the whole world feel surreal.
