Frosty

Hoar frost clings to the trees in the extreme Alberta cold...
How cold is it here?
Cold enough that brass monkeys
Shrivel in despair!
Hoar frost may look like snow, but it's not. It consists of ice crystals that form on vegetation under extremely cold, clear conditions from water vapour in the air .

It's not something that I've ever seen in Victoria, but at -20 Celsius degrees in Alberta? Well, that's a whole other story...
