Frost

Frost is the solid deposition of water vapor from saturated air. It is formed when solid surfaces are cooled to below the dew point of the adjacent air as well as below the freezing point of water. Frost crystals' size differ depending on time and water vapour available. Frost is also usually translucent in appearance. There are many types of frost, such as radiation and window frost. Frost causes economic damage when it destroys plants or hanging fruits.

Famous quotes containing the word frost:

    Anything we saw
    And thus fastened on
    With an epithet,
    We would see to yet
    We would want to touch,
    Not to mention clutch.
    —Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    The hand that knows his business won’t be told
    To do work better or faster....
    —Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Hear the soft bombs of dust
    It bursts against us at the chimney mouth,
    And at the eaves. I like it from inside
    More than I shall out in it. But the horses
    Are rested and it’s time to say Good-night,
    And let you get to bed again,
    —Robert Frost (1874–1963)
