    I never realised frozen frost could be like snowflakes and so unique. I noticed on walk out tonight the frost on cars, but couldn't be arsed to take photos.

    Decided to take some on way back from pub, by which time I'd obviously had a drink and it was a lot colder so my fingers were frozen, but here's a few different patterns on cars

    Not great photos but didn't know where to put them in the absence of a weather thread, but I was just fascinated by the patterns so would like to see more

    What's the different between frozen frost and frost. I know what frost is but frozen frost :confused:

    Oh Minnie. You must be too young to have ever seen Jack Frost on your window in the morning when you woke up.

    Well I'm assuming the above is frozen frost. Some of the cars had frost that made the windows just look frosty (ie. with no pattern) but the ones above ,on touching them, were actually icy, so I'm just guessing it's frozen frost. I could be wrong though :hmm::oops:

    Not at all, I used to have ice INSIDE my windows right up 'til the 1990s, but as there were curtains there, and I was normally too cold to bother looking, I'd dash straight to my living room to turn the gas fire on and get dressed/ready in there :D

    I'm not a cold person. I hate the cold, so tend not to take much notice of such things as I'm too busy rushing to get indoors/somewhere warm :oops:

    They are beautiful, though, those patterns caused by moving air, air moving in patterns and caught. It's depressing that it takes so long to refine a Google image search to exclude a cartoon character but have a look at hair ice for something else that can happen when it freezes. Amazing, brilliant stuff.

    That's lovely. I remember a few years ago when there was a really bad winter seeing some really unusual ice pictures in Ireland. Buggered if I can remember what they were, but they were really unusual

    There's another cool version of frost called yukimarimo. It's when there's a small amount of wind as the frost is forming and they get blown into tiny, delicate balls :cool:

    Weren't they giant ones? I think yukimarimo are tiny from my extensive knowledge*

    Could be. Maybe all that exertion from giving birth shrinks them a bit :hmm:

    When they sit down to rest, they defrost and are no more :(

    All this talk of cold has prompted me to go to my nice frost-free, snowball-free warm bed. Goodnight

    don't park next to a lake when it's a bit nippy.

    Simular, but in water. But with water there's more substance to add to the balls, as they are floating in water which is very nearly frozen itself, so they get bigger.
