Last night we had a deep freeze (again) and there was the strangest pattern of ice of our driveway. It must have rained at one point in the night with big drops and then the temperature must have dropped almost instantly. I have never seen such a weird pattern of ice.
I also noticed that the snow I shovelled had a strange texture, almost as if it were artificial snow usually found on ski hills. Maybe my neighbour who is always going on about chem trails (the government!) is right – maybe they are spraying the atmosphere with chemicals which alter the precipitation we see nowadays.
Or not, maybe it is just really freaky cold which is more likely the answer since I am in Canada.
