A Natural Phenomenon, Rime Ice, Has Been Popping Up In North Carolina And It’s Breathtaking

Winter in North Carolina produces some magnificent landscapes covered in snow. But not all of that white stuff you see on trees and such each winter is actually snow. Of course, some of it is plain ice but there’s another kind of ice, a more magical version, that forms when the weather conditions are just right. It’s called rime ice.
