Hoary Frost

Oh, you people are a laugh riot. No. Hoary Frost is not an old CB handle of mine, it is a beautiful fact of nature. This year WEATHER has been a key factor in all we do here. Some days it is just a huge pain in the keister and other days it truly is a sight to behold. The other morning when I came home from work our trees were coated with this gorgeous frost. Known as Hoary Frost or Hoar Frost or Radiation Frost, it  refers to the white ice crystals loosely deposited on objects that form on cold clear nights when heat losses into the open skies cause objects to become colder than the surrounding air. It is also know as an Air Hoar, a Surface Hoar or a Crevice Hoar. Hmmmmmm.

Little Debbie update. No babies and her appetite is great. A pig loving friend of ours (thank you Dot) tells me her appetite will decrease the morning of the day she delivers. Keith and I walk out to the hogcienda every few hours looking for evidence of labor. I'm sure it will be soon. Don't worry, you'll be the first to know.
