I’ve lived in Saskatchewan my whole life (which means I’ve endured a lot of cold winters) and I’ve never heard of rime ice. The pictures below are examples of it and I’m pretty sure most of us thought it was hoar frost (which is way more fun to say than rime ice). Anyway, rime ice results from freezing fog, and hoar frost occurs in the absence of fog…technicalities aside, it was quite pretty.
walking through Victoria Park on a foggy morning
Heading for a little Christmas shopping at the Mackenzie Art Gallery gift shop
in front of the T.C. Douglas Building, Wascana Centre
After about a week of foggy days, it was so nice to see the sun…
Regina’s downtown features some really beautiful buildings. Yesterday’s grey afternoon turned into a nice evening with blue sky and puffy clouds so it was a good opportunity to get out and take some city shots in the early evening light.
Blessed Sacrament (Regina’s second oldest church).
Hotel Sask, my favourite place to go for a a glass of wine…
Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame is inside…
The Federal Building, my favourite building in Regina…
I want to get a lot accomplished today, so an early morning walk (well, stroll is more accurate) seemed like a good idea to start the day. This early bird thing is not so bad in the summer and there were a lot of friendly “good morning” wishes exchanged on the path in Wascana Park. Here are some of the sights I saw on my stroll….
I’ve taken many pictures of the geese in Wascana Park so I wasn’t too interested in taking more until I saw this white-headed goose.
a shot of the downtown skyline from Wascana Park, love how green the park is right now.
College Building, U of R College Avenue Campus
I’ve walked by the frog at the U of R College Avenue Campus many times, but I didn’t realize all the detail on the sculpture until I walked up to it. But then I freaked out when a mouse scurried out from under it and that made me shriek, but I’m not afraid of squirrels or gophers, so why would I get freaked out by a tiny mouse? That’s my deep thought of the day. 🙂
