Frosty Morning Commute

Frosty Morning Commute

The photos in this collage were all taken on my way to work on Dec. 12, 2007 at around 8:30 in the morning, using my cameraphone. Those taken while in motion were blind captures. I was driving in much later than usual, so I had sunlight to see a wonder of nature I'd not experienced before.

We had hoarfrost that morning, which coated all the trees with shimmering ice crystals. Part of my drive was through a fog composed of very tiny bits of ice that looked like glitter floating in the air. There was very little in the way of a breeze, and MPR was reporting the temperature as around 6° F (-14° C).

It made me glad I'd decided to go into the office instead of working from home.
