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…
The Honouring Tree was installed in Wascana Centre on August 31, 2011, and I have to admit for all the many, many times I’ve walked around the lake since then, this fall was the first time I noticed it. It was a project initiated by the Saskatchewan African Canadian Heritage Museum Board, and is meant to honour life, legacy, and diversity…
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
― Rabindranath Tagore, Stray Birds
I took a lot of pictures of clouds this week. The first two were from my balcony last Monday night when I was experimenting with my tripod so I know what I’m doing when I take it on my upcoming trip and the last two I took near the Goose Island Overlook in Wascana Centre last night. When in doubt, take pictures of clouds!
