    Which, around these parts, is referred to as "hail". Because they've never seen actual hail. If it isn't breaking windows, it's not really "hail".

    All over the map, between Port Townsend and Bremerton and back. Sun, light rain, more sun, more rain, everything but snow.

    Just got about 20 cm of snow in one since last night, I know one 10 year old witha new snowboard who is probably enjoying this.

    Quite lovely today. Sunny. I had a very nice walk along the shoreline when I missed the ferry by about 30 seconds.

    There was a young couple on the jetty having pictures taken prior to their wedding. She had blue and green hair. If you know where I am, you'll know why.l

    We had a round of torrential downpours today before the sun's come out (and the temperature is going to drop tonight). Then it will be relatively cool for a couple of days, then warm up a bit before rinse-repeat over the weekend. This winter has been VERY wet for central Florida. It's going to make the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival's field trips very squishy! Everything's inundated.

    Gray skies, somewhat gloomy, cool (59 F supposedly...I think more like 50 F). No rain. Gusty breeze kicking up. Glad I'm working (not in a "gloomy day" mood).

    No, the "shark" was always there, set on those pillars. The sign got toppled, though.

    Mid-30s and falling, with bitter cold and strong, gusty wind predicted for next two days. Around noon today I endured sloppy wet snow in Norfolk, VA, to tour the battleship USS Wisconsin. About an inch of slush made the gangway and the weather decks slippery enough that these decks were closed to tourists. Fortunately I had explored that part of the ship from stem to stern yesterday in clear weather, and I was back for the VIP tour of the interior.

    Gray and rainy. In other words, January in the GNW. 2015 was a bit weird, '16 seems to be getting back to normal.

    Crazy, eh? And after a warm day most of yesterday, we are having a real Florida Winter day on the Space Coast. I think it was upper 40s last night. May not get out of the 50s later in the week! That's cold for here! Just in time for the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival, too!

    I realised after I logged out I misspelled Sleet.

    Sleet in these parts means a mixture of rain and snow, not window breaking ice balls. Which we sometimes do have on this small Island!

    The rain has given us a break for a couple of days and it has been icy with a thick fog instead. I hate winter.

    In the US, sleet is primarily frozen raindrops (whereas hail is a multi-layered precipitation formed by successive freezing of water on an initial ice-pellet as it ascends through layers of varying humidity and temperature). In the UK, as chrissy says, sleet usually refers to a snow/rain mix.

    I thought that the flying shark would impress the SyFy fans here, but alas not!

    Two nights in a row in the low teens (F) here with upper 20's as highs, so this pretty much kills the extended gardening season. Covered up the remaining carrots to dig later...which may be much later if this new predicted east coast snowmagedden comes to light by Friday, ugh.

    Heavy rain, mtn. passes closed for avalanche control. They've been closed a lot this winter--we've had a complete turn-around in our precipitation from last winter.

    Clear and upper 20s, the calm before the storm. Blizzard warning is up for tomorrow afternoon through early Sunday morning, with about two feet of snow with fearsome blowing and drifting expected. I have a snow blower ready to run, enough food for several days, and a standby generator fueled by Washington Gas, which has never failed in my lifetime here.

    Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow..........
    Just started snowing a few minutes ago and we could get upwards of 20" before it's over. Got the generator ready to go, need it to keep the well pump, fridge, water heater, etc going. Power outages are highly likely as winds pick up later tonite. Good luck to my fellow east coasters!
