All that glitters

We've been having cold but clear weather lately – well below freezing at night (averaging about 20F) and no higher than 38F during the day (yesterday it didn't break 28F). This means we're getting some exceptionally heavy frost.

Early mornings, when the sun backlights everything at a low angle, are the most striking.

Even ordinary barbed wire is all dressed up.

In the driveway, the fallen willow leaves are glued to the ground.

Every stalk of grass in the pasture gets lit up.

As do any remaining oak leaves on the lawn.

This glitter will end today as we head into cloudier and warmer weather. Over the next week, high temps are supposed to rise into 40s and even low 50s, and nighttime will be well above freezing. As the saying goes, if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes.

Bonus photos: Full moon rising.
