After a lovely little reprieve of -5C (23F) for a couple of days, we plunged to -35 in a matter of hours. This resulted in a very heavy fog that quickly froze as it cooled and settled. We had a thick rime on everything.
Very cold, but a beautiful result.

Thank you. 🙂
That is a gorgeous photo, Lynette. Your reward for suffering the cold.
Thank you. 🙂 The winter scenery here is truly spectacular but yes, you do have to be ready for the cold!
In the rimey ice and the hoary frost
my mind may wander, it may get lost
As I gaze into the blue
my foot gets frozen in my shoe.
There’s a “rime Rhyme” for your morning bad joke. Enjoy and thanks for the picture.
Hahaha. 😀 That’s great, especially the frozen foot! Very apt. Thanks for the poem. 🙂
As always, my very great pleasure.
Thank you, Kenny. Much appreciated. 🙂
There may be very little reason to our crazy weather Lynette, but there is rime. -30 feels like -40 here this AM. Ahhh, winter. Cheers. Allan
Hahaha. 😀 Love it! One has to retain a sense of humour through the weird season. We’re Canadian; we can handle it!
Oh my. It’s 55 here and I have my heater on! Yes, I’m a woos…
It didn’t know what that is in C so I looked it up – not very warm, really. When you work in a climate this cold, everything becomes relative. I’m sure that when I permanently leave the north that I will find reasons to moan about the cold …
I tolerate cold worse the older I get, too. That’s probably part of it.
Yes, I find that’s happening to me, too. I’m going to be one of those old ladies who wears five layers of shawls! 😉
What a beautiful picture. It’s scary how quickly the temperature can change. Stay warm out there.
Thank you very much, Linda. It’s unusual to get only -5C here in NWT in January, so I knew we were going to get cold again soon. I just didn’t expect it to be so fast. Our weather here has been strange this winter.
