When I saw that amazing sun dog last week, it made me think of another beloved winter meteorological phenomenon of mine: hoarfrost. I usually notice hoarfrost once or twice each winter, and so far, it had evaded my observation.
And what do you know? This morning the trees were sparkling.
I don't know if it was full-fledged hoarfrost, exactly, or just a fun twist on a regular old frost. All I know is that the light shining through the trees was pretty nice.
