Winter Wonderland. Above: The Everett house on the corner of Rt 167 and 1A creates an image worthy of a winter calendar scene. On the morning of February 4, 2014, the trees in the area were covered with what appeared to be a thin sheet of ice. WAGM TV meteorologist, Ted Shapiro told the Fort Fairfield Journal this effect may have been caused by either Hoar Frost or Rime Ice. Hoar Frost is formed by direct condensation of water vapor to ice and occurs when moist air is brought to its frost point by cooling, then coming into contact with objects exposed to the free air, such as grass blades, tree branches, or leaves. Rime ice occurs where super cooled water droplets in the air come into contact with a medium on which they can freeze. Comparing internet photos between the two, this looked to this photographer most like Hoar Frost. photo/David Deschesne
