It's a common winter scene: Tree branches, power lines and fences coated in ice and snow.
These picturesque displays are often the result of ice rime and hoarfrost, winter phenomena that occur in very specific conditions.

"Ice rime forms on cold days or nights when atmospheric conditions are calm and an abundance of moisture must be in place," she explains.
"This can cause water droplets to freeze on surfaces, creating needle-like structures."

The accumulation of ice and snow is beautiful, but it can weigh down branches and powerlines, causing damage.
Multiple days of fog and freezing fog on the central Prairies in early December 2018 resulted in more than 30,000 calls from Saskatchewan residents, reporting power outages.
