Frosty Visitors



Sunday late in the afternoon all of the neighborhood children (Great nieces and nephews)  showed up..in one huge sled.  Joshua, my oldest nephew,  has a large sled that he pulls behind the snowmobile.  I went for a ride too...the kids all wanted candy..they never forget that I have a whole Jar of Tootsie Pop Suckers in the kitchen just waiting for them.  We had a great ride down the lane and through the woods...the weather was wonderful!  When they dropped me off at home I got them each a sucker and I got hugs in return..an excellent trade!


This morning there was hoar frost covering everything..it adds some interest to a winters day..I am off to take more photos! :)

  2. What makes the hoar frost? my guess is moisture. It makes things look beautiful.

  6. We are going to get freezing rain to knock all this frost of the trees and onto the ground. I am anxious to see how it actually does work out with freezing rain and wind. Maybe it will just build up more.

  8. I bet the sled ride was a lot of fun. Some hot chocolate after a nice chilly ride would be good. Your frosty picture is really nice. Nature provides such perfect artistry.

  12. Patsy, Here is the definition!
    Radiation frost (also called hoar frost or hoarfrost) refers to the white ice crystals, loosely deposited on the ground or exposed objects, that form on cold clear nights when heat losses into the open skies cause objects to become colder than the surrounding air.
    It was beautiful today..I am hoping that we have it again in the morning..it may double up nicely:)

  13. Hi Connie,
    I've posted a little item about our weekend visit to Schumachers in New Prague. We were the only guests Sunday night, and each time another staff person stopped to chat we told them the story of how we'd learned of their reopening from your blog. It was great fun for us, so thanks again for posting that! On the way back I took a hoar frost photo, too, but with the flat light it's not very dramatic. Still, the countryside was lovely.

    And look at all those happy faces. You are helping them all to have wonderful memories of a childhood spent with special loved ones doing fun activities together. Snow can provide such a great time!
