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…

Warm wishes for a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I hope, like Mr. Squirrel, you enjoy a few treats over the holidays….

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.

It was inevitable, but this is supposed to happen this week. At least we made it to Halloween without snow….I suppose it’s kind of pretty…

Winter can be very pretty, but I’m still anticipating Maui in March – one month to go!
I’m not usually out and about on a Sunday morning….Sunday mornings are for reading and drinking coffee, except for the one Sunday out of four that I have to work. So, if I hadn’t work today, I may not have gone out to take pictures of what has turned out to be three days of beautiful hoar frost on the trees. And we saw the sun today!

I may have been a minute or two late for work in order to take this pic…
