I finally got some "Wintry Precipitation". At 5:30am, I heard a strange noise and went to look outside. It appeared like a giant bean bag chair in the sky had exploded and millions of styro balls were bouncing on my deck and in the grass. Now, I have never seen anything like this, but you know who knew what it was: Google Search! Turns out the little balls are called Graupel. I have shared below the Wikipedia excerpt from the page on Graupel so everyone can know what was falling from the skies over the States. Included in my wintry mix are some birds I do know: the hummer, a buzzard and a cold crow. Enjoy!
Through the icy window in 28 degrees, Here He Comes!!!!!
