Frosted Grocery Windows

    I took this photo of McBride’s only grocery store the other night when it was -24°C (-11°F).  It may not be entirely clear from the photo, but all of the whitish walls that you see are glass with ice frozen onto the inside.  The moisture inside the store has condensed on the cold glass windows and then frozen.  In warmer temperatures, the glass would be clear like the door.  Usually there are all kind of signs, posters, and notices taped to the inside of the glass, but they have been removed due to the freezing.

    This is the normal situation of the store windows when the outside temperatures turn frigid, but even after all these years of seeing it, I still find it an interesting phenomenon.
