Doesn’t Look Much Like Snow at All

Snow:
snow

Not snow:
sleet
So much for getting another 6 to 10 inches of snow.  It’s turned mostly to sleet and, even worse, freezing rain.  Apparently sleet (or ice pellets) is a pretty common phenomenon here in the eastern U.S.  Having lived my entire life here (so far, anyway), of course I am familiar with sleet, but it seems to have become more common.  That may have to do with living closer to the coast than I used to but, in any case, I don’t like it.  It’s hard to plow, doesn’t melt well, and isn’t worth a bucket of snot for cross-country skiing.

Bucket of snot??  Where did that come from?  A little early for a winter weather rant, I know, but why wait?  Especially since Karan seems to be getting all the snow all the way out on the left coast.
