Note to concept artists: If you’re designing a frozen world, consider the fact that ice can form on the inside of things as well as on the outside.
Here’s a bus in Siberia. The wipers scrape the outside of the windshield. On the inside, the dashboard is covered with frozen precipitation. The bus driver sees the lights of the dashboard through a layer of ice.
Moisture condenses on everything, just like the frost in your freezer.
If someone leaves a window cracked open, the snow blows in and forms drifts.
