Weekly Weather: Freezing Rain or Ice

For this round of Weekly Weather collages I decided to do another atlas as my base. However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

The topic this week is Freezing Rain or Ice. (Freezing rain is the name given to rain that falls when surface temperatures are below freezing. Unlike sleet, a mixture of rain and snow, ice pellets, or hail, freezing rain is made entirely of liquid droplets.) (Ice is frozen water, a brittle, transparent crystalline solid.)

For this collage I used pictures of glaciers, icebergs, frozen rain on berries and was blessed to find a photo of a rhino ice sculpture! Brrr! So cold!!! Where’s the heat?
