Over the past, week Mother Nature has dropped the temperature below the freezing point.
This action leads to the formation of frost and ice into very cool and abstract forms.
Early morning trips home after the night shift, were greeted by glittering fields of frost crystals and snowflakes.
Jack Frost was busy adding his touch and sparkle to a landscape of white and blue hues.
An article posted on www.farmersalmanac.com titled "Who Is Jack Frost?" by Jaime McLeod shed a little light on the legendary frozen figure.
"Jack Frost is best known in North America and Britain, but has his origins in the ancient Norse figure Jokul Frosti, a wicked frost giant who served as the personification of ice and snow," McLeod wrote.
A quick check of the internet found an article on frost formation by Meteorologist Jeff Haby on the National Weather Service's website weather.gov.
"'Frost' can form in two ways: Either by deposition or freezing," Haby wrote.
Depositional frost is also known as white frost or hoar frost. ... When this frost forms the water vapor goes directly to the solid state.
Depositional frost covers the vegetation, cars, etc. with ice crystal patterns (treelike branching pattern).
If the depositional frost is thick enough, it resembles a light snowfall", Haby explained.
"Frost that forms due to the freezing of liquid water is best referred to as frozen dew ....Frozen dew does not have the crystal patterns of white frost," Haby continued.
That's just the nature of things 'round here.
