Hoar Frost

 

Sean R. HEAVEY / FOR THE COURIER

A dose of hoar frost helped decorate much of the Glasgow area for the holidays this past week. The weather phenomenon typically occurs when there is a combination of snow on the ground, open water on the lake, and an absence of wind. According to Tanja Fransen (National Weather Service Glasgow), "In 2010, we had so much fog, the rime ice and hoar frost kept accumulating and it actually took down power lines from St. Marie into the Opheim/Larslan areas." No related damage was reported during November/December of 2015.
