Unusual Meteorological Event

Blogspot sure does some strange things with multiple images. Anyway we had significant hoar frost this morning. It is actually frozen fog but the effect is dramatic. The cardinal was sitting in one of our trees and you can see the glitter of the frost. The image above shows that it really is a thick collection of ice crystals. These crystals attach themselves to big trees as well as bushes and weeds. These pictures were taken at sunrise as by 9 or 10 it all had disappeared.
