South Queensland cyclone (Weather)

It is beautiful. There is a variety of winter conditions, events, and phenomena that are particularly beautiful. One is when it freezes during a fog. When that happens, everything gets coated in unbelievable crystal. I've seen it probably fewer than 10 times in my life, and that was growing up in a cold region.

There are other conditions when things are coated in clear ice, but that's not nearly as beautiful as everything coated in crystallized ice (I guess ice is a crystal, but you know what I mean, visible crystals).

But, yes, everything blanketed in white is also astounding. The thing I miss most is any sign of life. When we first got here, the biggest shock was not the cold or the snow, it was the absence of bugs, birds (well, in the quantity you have them in the tropics), and all the other critters we were used to.
