Ice things ?
« on: November 19, 2005, 09:32:24 PM »
I don't know what this kind of formation is called. Rime came to mind but that is more ' ice deposited by wind' ..... I think...

It happens in the spring and fall . When the ground freezes it seems to squeeze the water out and these upsidedown icicles form ;D

Thanks, Chet.

They fascinate me . I think they ought to have a special name from a fairy tale or something.

They appear overnight and vanish quickly and have such a delicate and variable structure.  :)

  Kinda related to Hoar Frost. Here's a write up, sorta.

   Frost often appears as a light feathery deposit of ice, often of a curious and delicate pattern. The dates on which killing frosts (frost destructive to vegetation and staple agricultural products) occur vary considerably.

I was thinking Hoar frost too but from a google search tonight,it looks like we tend to use it as a blanket term here.
SB,
Do the columns sound like breaking glass/plastic when you step on it?

Dat ain't Hoar Frost as I know it FDH.  Hoar Frost appears on bushes and trees, usually on a real cold foggy morning when the moisture freezes on the branches and twigs. It's real pretty and resembles a flocked tree.  Dem Tings Sprucebunny took a picture of are pure ice.  Note:  I'm trying ta write so Chet can unnnerstan.

 Not necessarily, according to the info I googled up  ::) ::) ::)

  It also stated that it is formed from moist gasses that rise from Things, grass, leaves, etc., and forms little delicate columns of "HOLLOW" stemmed structures, rising from the ground ???  ::) ::) ::)  I forgot all them "Yankee" things, long ago.  ::) ;D :D :D :D

We get that sort of frost a lot here.
It usually forms on moist dirt areas, and because it usually melts every day it doesn't get that long.
If it forms on bare clay it usually lifts a crust of loose dirt and moss on the ends of the crystals.
Then it melts during the day and turns the otherwise dry track into a slippery mess of mud and ice  ::)

I think FDH has got the right reference, it seems to form here from moisture escaping out of the soil.

You left that part out the first time , Harold . Moisture rising would explain it. I'll have to beep in on it and see if it's hollow.

Ya, Ian, I've seen it lift up a layer of moss or dirt.

So what is the origins of the term " hoar frost" ? I still think it should have a more magical name ;D

I used to see this kind of ice in the spring when the ground was soaked and then it turned cold again.  I also used to see it in the fall when I was hunting. I think you all are right about the source. Their is a mist rising because the ground is warm, and then it freezes.

We don't see that down here...  ::)
So, how did I end up here anyway?

I agree with Chets explanation with the emphasis on frost. ;D It's a big problem with certain types of plantation scarification where all the litter and fermation layer is scalped off the topsoil. I've seen the frost pop the trees out of the ground as if the seedling was just throwed on the ground. To prevent it there has to be a good bunch of organic mixed in the soil or a thin layer of duff. :o

No its using water colour wet on wet then lay it out in the frost to slowly freeze
the ice patterns form in the paint and fix when it dries

hey Joan...

Here's a little poetic reference to "hoar frost" with a fairyland type theme for ya...   :)  This woman must have felt the same way about hoar frost as you do.   :)
I found it on http://www.Bartleby.com, a very cool website.
 
34. Fairyland
 
By Anne Glenny Wilson
 
 
DO you remember that careless band, 
Riding oer meadow and wet sea-sand, 
  One autumn day, in a mist of sunshine, 
Joyously seeking for fairyland? 
 
The wind in the tree-tops was scarcely heard,         5
The streamlet repeated its one silver word, 
  And far away, oer the depths of woodland, 
Floated the bell of the parson-bird. 
 
Pale hoar-frost glittered in shady slips, 
Where ferns were dipping their finger-tips;         10
  From mossy branches a faint perfume 
Breathed oer honeyed clematis lips. 
 
At last we climbed to the ridge on high. 
Ah, crystal vision! Dreamland nigh! 
  Far, far below us the wide Pacific         15
Slumbered in azure from sky to sky. 
 
And cloud and shadow across the deep 
Wavered, or paused in enchanted sleep, 
  And eastward the purple-misted islets 
Fretted the wave with terrace and steep.         20
 
We looked on the tranquil, glassy bay, 
On headlands sheeted with dazzling spray, 
  And the whitening ribs of a wreck forlorn 
That for twenty years had wasted away. 
 
All was as calm, and pure, and fair,         25
It seemed the hour of worship there, 
  Silent, as where the great North Minster 
Rises for ever, a visible prayer. 
 
Then we turned from the murmurous forest-land, 
And rode over shingle and silver sand,         30
  For so fair was the earth in the golden autumn, 
We sought no farther for Fairyland. 
 
 
Y'all can pronounce it "puh-SKOLLY"

I don't read poetry either, though when I did a search for "hoar frost" on that site, I thought it was really interesting that one of the first things it came up was this poem that talked about something you talked about--that it should come from a fairy tale.  So I thought I'd post it--gotta add a little culture from time to time!    ;)

Yeah we sometimes get ice crystalls (no not snow) in the air right before a winter thaw spell.

OR when the air temp drops below -40F and the moisture in the air crystallizes  on a beautifull clear winters night  ;)

That's what sometimes happens here, it will drop to -30 or colder then in a couple of days it's raining.  ::)

 Thanks Iain. Sounds really interesting. Not that I could ever try it in CR, but, I like to see other peoples talent.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.
