Needle ice and

I wonder if the dirt feels like it’s flying.

Turns out this familiar crunchy stuff is called needle ice, and a description of how it occurs can be found here.

Funny how things always have a name. I see this stuff occasionally and think, “Hey, there’s some of that crunchy dirt,” but never considered what it might be called. Nice to finally meet you, needle ice.
