Off Topic: "What is Silverfrost?":

John, since you are so insistent, one possible answer to "what is Silverfrost?":

Another:

https://www.meisterdrucke.com/kunstdrucke/Ivan-Fedorovich-Choultse/594177/Silberfrost,-Engadin,-1910.html

Verbal description of the natural phenomenon of silverfrost from a book published in 1918:

https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/ssd?id=nyp.33433090741723;seq=147

Even older (1851), in German (Fraktur type, even) describes the dangers of silverfrost falling on the heads of in-the-forest-walking-unsuspecting-outdoors-persons (page 182, left column, middle of page):

https://books.google.com/books?id=mUdEAAAAcAAJ&pg=PA182&lpg=PA182&dq=Silberfrost&source=bl&ots=gNbxG9nDHK&sig=ACfU3U2uqzS82KWjMxDYCMT2mrobVj_jyQ&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjN_s-rrqPqAhVHYs0KHTucCPw4FBDoATAFegQIChAB#v=onepage&q&f=false
