Rime Ice

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.

After about a week of foggy days, it was so nice to see the sun…

Outdoor art installations – such a nice idea!  A project between the Mackenzie Art Gallery, Regina Downtown and the City of Regina… I’m not sure how long they will be up, but I took these pictures in late September and they are still up now.
