Because ice is a mineral …

… we should record this morning’s ice storm in Wooster. You can read about the surprising properties of water ice as well on Wikipedia.

This makes me long for hot desert days.

    If it makes you feel any better it is 30F here in Reno…a little higher than Barstow, but still desert-esque….

    It does make me feel better, Josh!

    I was wishing I had my camera this morning (and time to take photos). Is appreciation of the scenery a requirement for geologists, or just something that increases job satisfaction?

  4. Mark Wilson says:

    Both, Susan! With your long drives today, you saw more ice than we did!
