Frost Freaks

    Article metrics


    MR. LESTER F. WARD describes some remarkable frost figures in the current number of The Botanical Gazette. He says that on a bright frosty morning in December, 1892, Mr. Victor Mason and himself observed some white objects looking like icicles close to the ground, along the border of a pine wood. A closer examination showed that they were in truth nothing but ice, but that instead of icicles they were veritable freaks of frost.
