The weather forecast said it would be cold this morning. REALLY COLD. They were right!! It was 14.5°F when we got up, and it was all I could do to force myself out the door into nature's freezer! But I simply HAD to see what happened to the frost when it was that cold, so I bundled up like little Randy in "A Christmas Story" and out I went with Molly at my side. She couldn't be happier in her thick double coat and had a grand time frolicking about while I marveled at the world around me. At first I didn't see anything all that special, but then I saw some boards with screws in them and could hardly believe my eyes!! The frost looked like miniature Christmas trees! So huge and detailed!!

I knew I had only about 15 minutes before I would be forced to get back inside, but in the end, I refused to go back for 30 minutes because I was enjoying the beautiful frosty sights so much! I found many "furry" screws like the one above, frosty planks, twigs, and leaves. and even I found a mushroom in the grass that was looked like it was covered in diamonds! I saw so many cool frosty things that by the time I got back to the house, I was very glad that I forced myself to go out into the cold! You all would be snorting in laughter to see me sticking my feet, one at a time, into a hot sink of water to get the feeling back into my toes! :D :D Too funny!! :D

Henry Ford (July 30, 1863 – April 7, 1947) was an American industrialist, the founder of the Ford Motor Company, and sponsor of the development of the assembly line technique of mass production. Contrary to popular belief, Ford did not invent the automobile nor did he invent the assembly line. Ford however was the first to develop and manufacture the first automobile that many middle class Americans could afford to buy. In doing so, Ford converted the automobile from a relatively unknown invention into an innovation that would profoundly impact the landscape of the twentieth century. His introduction of the Model T automobile revolutionized transportation and American industry. As owner of the Ford Motor Company, he became one of the richest and best-known people in the world. He is credited with "Fordism": mass production of inexpensive goods coupled with high wages for workers. Ford had a global vision, with consumerism as the key to peace. His intense commitment to systematically lowering costs resulted in many technical and business innovations, including a franchise system that put dealerships throughout most of North America and in major cities on six continents. Ford left most of his vast wealth to the Ford Foundation and arranged for his family to control the company permanently. Wiki: Henry Ford

This is an absolute stunner. The frost is a wonderful thing to capture and I never thought about screws etc. I did have a load of frost pictures when we had a hoar frost in 2010. I just have to wait now for the really cold days to get some pictures. Thank you Janet for such incredible pictures.

Great macro of the frost with all the little crystals. You said it was cold at your place this morning at 14.5 F . Janet if you want cold come to my house, it was - 40.5 F this morning. Wife and I went for a long walk and took some hoar frost photos ( posted on my site) It was cold this morning but if you dress warm it is not all that bad. It was a beautiful sunny day.
