Frosty pane

It’s -21F (-29C) and the temperature is still dropping. My kitchen window is completely covered with “fern feathers”.  The ice crystals have grown from single stalks to full fledged sheets of ice as the temperature outside the window drops.

Initial formation of crystals enlarges quickly in the intense cold.

The ice crystals sort of resemble palm fronds that have fallen to the ground.
