Plane De-icing, Up Close

I shot this from my window seat yesterday afternoon at a de-icing station at Cleveland Hopkins Airport. I felt like we were already in the clouds. It was even colder and icier in Chicago a couple hours later where the mercury dipped to 0 F, or -18 C.

Fresh off a 13-hour flight, I arrived in Doha today late afternoon local time, where the closest conditions get to this are either at the Qatari capital’s indoor skiing hill or mall skating rinks. I don’t plan to visit either.

For the record, today’s Pic du Jour is the 360th straight.
