Thanks so much. I’ve been seen hair-ice for years on alder at Mclane Creek Nature Trail & calling it hoar frost. Have to educate the other regulars about it.

It’s been a great year for hair-ice out there!

Glad to hear that you see hair ice a lot. Tell me if you also see ribbon ice. I’ll try to post a photo of ribbon ice that a friend took.

I gave a Science Cafe talk recently about ice formations, and one fellow mentioned seeing ribbon ice from a mushroom. So, keep an eye out for mushrooms on those hair-ice days.
