Feathered Trees

It's been snowing for about the past week here in northern NH. Yesterday the weather turned to a fine freezing rain, sort of a freezing mist actually, despite the temperatures holding in the teens. This morning the trees were just covered with icy snow which made them look like they were covered with white feathers. One tree looked like it was made from white pipe cleaners. Mother Nature sure knows how to decorate in breathtaking white.

breathtaking! We don't get snow except in the mountains, so we have to enjoy it vicariously.

I'm told the ice formation on the trees is called a hoarfrost. Whatever you call it, it's absolutely gorgeous!

So pretty, and not near as dangerous as ice, which is also gorgeous.

Talk about "wish you were there." I wish I was there!
