    Pretty much, except it's clear, not rime-looking.

    That's the interesting part of the scenario. Unless there happened to be a huge inversion above it and freezing rain (which the TKS wouldn't help that much), you are right - there's no reason to be running the TKS at all and the only result would be the gelling...

    ... if that is indeed what the photo is showing - it would be interesting to hear the full backstory. I think I'm a member of the same group as Nate so went back to take a look. I couldn't sift through all the usual arguing.
