ORIGINAL — Hoar Frost

December 18, 2011 (Day 264) — Hoar Frost

You know it’s easy to tell that I’m part of the generation raised with Beavis and Butthead?

While talking to my father about hoar frost I couldn’t stop giggling. Even as an adult and productive member of society, my sense of humor is on par with my 13-year-old.

Yes. I giggled about hoar frost.

Actual, hoar frost won’t cause nearly as many nerd boners as Frost, pictured above.

Hoar frost, on the other hand:

Hoar frost (also called radiation frost or hoarfrost or pruina) refers to the white ice crystals, loosely deposited on the ground or exposed objects, that form on cold clear nights when heat losses into the open skies cause objects to become colder than the surrounding air.
