On Monday morning, when I headed out to feed the birds I took the camera with me.
It was a bit foggy out there and the trees were covered in hoar frost or perhaps rime ice. The latter is formed when the fog droplets rapidly freeze. However, I can't tell the two apart so I'll leave it to others to decide.
Whatever it is, I think it almost looks like leaves on the branches. So pretty and later, the crystals fall and sparkle as the day warms up.
I made a couple of trips out of the house this week, first on Tuesday to Costco and Peavey Mart, and on Wednesday to the Dollarama and Walmart for my groceries. I follow the Costco West fan blog - the author is in British Columbia, and sends out an e-mail each week of the items on sale (and often other things that he finds interesting) at the warehouse. I went through the post and noted there were several items I wanted. Overall I saved about $15 on the five items I purchased so well worth the trip.
