At least the frost is nice . . .

We've had a serious cold snap in Yellowknife this week - temperatures in the mid-minus 30s for the most part, dipping down to minus forty last night.

As compensation for having to deal with the exposed-flesh-freezes-in-thirty-seconds scenario, we've been treated to a beautiful display of hoar frost on the trees. It's lasted for days, and has built up a nice coating.

And yes, I did freeze my fingers taking these photos, but who could resist?
