Ice Fog

Ice Fog is minute ice crystals that form in the air in extremely cold temperatures.  This morning it was -9 F while driving to work and the beautiful ice fog was drifting down the river with the ice, moving along with the current.  This eventually will end up at Niagara Falls and tumble over the falls.

This is very early in our area to see this as it’s usually around the first week of February this rolls in.  Regardless it is still such a beautiful sight to behold.

A fellow blogger, who has a wonderful blog hopping from Maine to Texas, recently posted pictures of the Sea Smoke in Maine.  Take the time to visit her page here:  Lulu’s Musings Sea Smoke.    Her pictures are stunning (and her blog is fun and full of beautiful pictures and ideas).  Sea smoke is a fog that is formed when very cold air moves over warmer water.

As the ice was moving this morning the ice fog was getting thicker and was so cool to watch drifting down current as it went.
