Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
"Graupel." I learned a new word.
It describes tiny pellets of ice precipitation
somewhere between sleet and small hail,
with ice and snow mixed together. Or something.
That's what fell out of the sky two days ago ...
in May, in the northern hemisphere.
Today it was just plain rain.
Rain is all right though.
The plant kingdom is greening and growing like gangbusters now,
and the growing green things
need all the rain they can get right now.
Even if there is a chilly wind blowing.

And with our luck,
we will go from early spring
straight into summer ...
