We woke to sun and the street sweeps buzzing about and thought for a moment “SPRING!” but that was soon wiped away with a slap of sleeting snow that the weatherman called graupel, which lead to a quizzical look from Jason and a shared “wtf did the weatherman just say” moment, which then lead to a google search..
Graupel (German pronunciation: [ˈɡʁaʊpəl]; English /ˈɡraʊpəl/, also called soft hail or snow pellets)
So ok, yeah, it graupeled (sp?) today and I feel a tad smarter and a smidge more German for new words!
Worn blue jean NINETEEN HUNDRED HOUSE in a graupel storm?
There is definitely not any graupel in this picture.. my little sweet potato all sacked up like a spring present and she’ll be home in about a month!
Spring rabbits ..again caught in a graupel storm!
(in all honesty Miss Maggie was made quite awhile ago, so technically she was pre-graupel)
