frozen fog

goes_nam_1070x_100A great deal of people on the north American continent share a common weather system right now.

Here, in Saint John, it seems to go back and forth between, freezing rain, ice pellets, sleet and frozen fog … you name it!

It’s quite amazing — it’s not raining right now, but still I can hear the ‘rattling’ of something coming down on the snow out on the balcony!

Ice storms can be quite devastating. I’ve only experienced one, and that was in January 2009 … we’d just moved to Saint John from Quebec. Just before I came to Canada they’d had a really bad one, but I’ve only heard about that.

As I said to my friend on Facebook last night … the only thing these ice storms are good for, is photography! As it was a first for me, back in 2009, I was in total awe of the ice formations on the beach. This was before the days of DSLR camera … we had the little Canon Powershot [which is a terrific little camera], when I tried to capture the glistening grass…  I will never forget it.

    Its beautiful and dangerous. We often have weather like what you describe, but the ice storms are not so heavy and bad here. Everything about weather is more “cultivated” here LOL.

        According to the Powers That Be, this is THE worst ice storm Ontario’s ever had):

    We have at least an inch of ice, so waiting for +degrees and/or (’til Tuesday?) for sunshine and praying there’s no wind. Good luck to you.

      Last night, I went down and de-iced the car. Managed to get one door open so I could start it. I don’t know how tick it was but it was thick. Phew..

    One of my favorite parts of winter is the photography! Snow, trees, wildlife – it all just takes on a different feel this time of year. Lovely photos by the way – the crow near the water is beautiful!
