Freezing rain

Freezing rain is the name given to rain that falls when surface temperatures are below freezing. Unlike a mixture of rain and snow, ice pellets, or hail, freezing rain is made entirely of liquid droplets. While looking at thesw two photos you do not see much on it, right? If you look closely you see how sleek and shiny the trunks of the trees and the streetlamp posts are. That is all ice, which started cracking in the morning because sun started melting the core of ice off. It doesn't happen often in Estonia, I have experienced it few times, but in Toronto its apparently a once in two years affair. The most interesting was the sound of the cracking ice in a quiet Saturday morning Toronto.
