A couple of things that happened last week that really stand out are shown below.
First I was working in a guys yard running a topo and out of the corner of my eye I see something jump, I look over and see a dog standing on a block wall staring at me.
I've seen this before but this one was pretty cool. He actually watched me complete the job.
You may be asking what the hell is that. Well that is what fell on us last week.
Graupel (German pronounciation: ['gʁaʊpɛl], also called soft hail or snow pellets)refers to precipitation that forms when supercooled droplets of water are collected and freeze on a falling snowflake, forming a 2–5 mm (0.079–0.197 in) ball of rime. Strictly speaking, graupel is not the same as hail or ice pellets, although it is sometimes referred to as small hail. However, the World Meteorological Organization defines small hail as snow pellets encapsulated by ice, a precipitation halfway between graupel and hail.
There is more but I think you get the idea.
