May 3rd, 2019: Slovenian Sculptures

These pictures were taken after a nine day, high wind, snow & ice storm on Mt Javornic in Slovenia.



The photographer says this rime ice was created by a dense fog on the top of the mountain during the storm.
But I donít see how you can have fog on top of the mountain in a high wind, more likely it was a low cloud.



On the most exposed parts of the mountain the ice was 40 inches thick. That's hard to believe, even 40 cm is crazy,
40mm is believable, maybe CNN screwed up.
On most evergreens the load get carried by a lot of branches, but deciduous trees a single branch can load to failure.



Since it appears storms everywhere are getting more intense, Mt Javornic will probably get slapped again.

Rime ice is really pretty stuff. It's super thick in these pictures. Some of that ice looks 40 inches thick in spots.

Not when it's on the leading edges of the wings of the aircraft you're piloting.
