    I'd guess we are at 2 inches of snow now, Big snow is expected for tonight and the next 5 days and nights.

    So no worries if I'm not around for a while. Internet gets pretty flaky when the snow flakes fall.

    Now on to science!

    What is sleet? A night or two ago I saw something new. It came down like snow flakes on a string. It reminded me of my Great Dane's slobber,long strings of icy snowy stuff. . So did I see sleet?

    But the really strange thing that I saw that night were big, softball size
    clumps of snow falling. I only saw a half dozen of them.

    They fell lightly like snow. As I have never even heard of this before I'm looking for some sort of confirmation.

    But hurry before my internet goes out! ":O}

    Softball size? Dun-dun-duuhn! Sorry, never heard of such a phenomenon. Seems like softball sized hail is becoming more common. Wish to be spared such hail monsters!

    No, it floated dowm like a single snow flake. It was at night so I only saw it in motion in it's last 7 feet of fall.

    Any way a good 6 inches on the ground now, Snow is predicted day and night for the next 5 days.A fine mist of tiny snow flakes falling now.

    I don't understand what we are talking about. Highly unusual! A six inch wide SINGLE snowflake? Mongo not permit such a phenomenon in the "big" city. Maybe we will see some snow tomorrow? It's beautiful to see and gussy's up the place real good. Love the quiet too!

    no not a huge snow flake but an unusual formation or gathering of snow flakes into a rough ball
