Is frost really a type of ice?

Frost

No, it's not a shortened nickname for Frosty the Snowman or Jack's last name!
Frost is ice that forms on surfaces by the condensation of atmospheric water vapor when temperature of the surface is less than 32 degrees F. Frost is often seen as a light, slippery coating of ice, normal during those frequent chilly winter mornings.
