The conditions were just right in Sioux Falls for the creation of hoarfrost. Sioux Falls woke up on Sunday morning to just about everything covered in fluffy frost. Grass, trees even chainlink fences were covered in hoarfrost. It made for a scene that would be straight out of a book or movie. Check out the gallery below.

Some people spell it out with a space; hoar frost. Either way, you spell it, in 2023, the name is rather unfortunate for reasons that I don't need to go into here. This frost got its name from the Old English word "hoar" which means "showing signs of old age" because the frost looks like white hair. Yep, it definitely looks like that.
