Hoar frost clung to the landscape throughout the county Monday morning, offering commuters and outdoor lovers a picturesque view. The National Weather Service describes Hoar Frost as “A deposit of interlocking crystals formed by direct sublimation on objects, usually those of small diameter freely exposed to the air, such as tree branches, plants, wires, poles, etc.” The county was under a dense fog warning during the morning hours of Monday and Tuesday of this week.
The pictured scene was found on the east side of Highway 144, just north of Grand Junction. Also pictured is a downtown pillar covered in snow on the Jefferson square.
Greene County is estimated to have received anywhere from 6-8 inches of snow during the Jan. 19 storm which blanketed much of central Iowa.
