Frostline, originally uploaded by scootersbabygirl.

Those of you who don’t live in cold – ie mother fucking freezing – climate don’t know about one of the most fun things you can do on any given morning – watch the frost line recede!

The frost sets in during the night and does everything it can to kill all of the plants in the area. In the morning, the sun does its best to push the frost back. While it’s warming up, you can see the frost line – the area where the shade still protects the frost from melting.

I actually like watching the frost slowly, but surely, disappear. I also have a strange tendency to think that I should walk over to the line and jump from one side to the other yelling out “LIFE DEATH LIFE DEATH LIFE DEATH”.

Yeah, I know, I’m weird like ‘dat.

    We’ve been having way too much frost lately. Day time isn’t too bad but at night it drops down below freezing and I’m just really not ready for another Montreal winter. After 34 years you would think I’d be used to it but… no.

    Yay! Thank you Winnie! I love my new camera too! Now to get more time to play with it!

    Sherry – I know! We’ve had tons of frost too! None yesterday or this morning though – yay!

    nope ..that whole life/death thing is totally cool (at least in my book) because it really is.. sun=’s warmth =’s life… frost=’s cold =’s death. You rock!
