Adorned by Nature

In spite of the damp and penetrating cold, nature had a treat for Enumclaw residents this morning; trees and bushes adorned with thousands of tiny frozen water drops.

In spite of the damp and penetrating cold, nature had a treat for Enumclaw residents this morning; trees and bushes adorned with thousands of tiny frozen water drops.  This happens when the trees and bushes are below freezing, and the tiny water drops that make up fog are also below freezing, but still exist as liquid water.  When these drops, so tiny that they almost float in place hit the branches they freeze into almost round drops.  This is different from frost where ice crystals grow from water vapor (a gas) on below freezing surfaces.

John, you must be a poet so direct and simple, but a descriptive Mark-Twain style is your wording. I urge you to write a few and join us at poetry night at The Sequel Expresso & Bookstore on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. There's a nice bunch of local poets and others who just come to listen.

Hi Susan-- Thanks for the nice compliment. Mark Twain is one of my favorite authors and the only one that made me laugh out loud while commuting to the UW on the bus.
