2/11/2004: Hoarfrost



An MSNBC Week in Pics shot credited to one Jamie Roper. This one is selected because it's a damn good shot, but also because I had never heard this term "hoarfrost" before.

And also because, looking at this, I couldn't tell what it was without reading the caption.

It's a volleyball net covered with hoarfrost. Sometimes called white frost, this frost can only happen in the right circumstances -- when misty air at near freezing temperature hits a surface that's already freezing cold, such as a net.

How do you make a hoarfrost?

Hmm... if that's a hole in the net, why are the dangling strands pointing toward the center of the hole, and not down?

Static electricity. No, wait, capillary action. Um, Bernouli's priniciple? The law of crystal formation (I made that one up.)

The threads are probably coated with resin or plastic.
