When i moved to Colorado many years ago i learned a new word : Graupel. It's when little tiny snow balls fall from the sky. I don't remember ever seeing this type of weather growing up in Michigan, and I know I had never heard the word. I actually think that graupel is fun!
Cold again here, and no snow or sleet or rain or graupel or anything! Oh well...we do have beautiful sunshine, and Pikes Peak has snow on it so the view is beautiful.
