BATMAN MUST HAVE USED HIS 'GRAUPELLING' HOOK
Okay, so it never fails. You can't wait to get those beautiful flowers they sell in the stores, with their happy, bobbing heads saying, "Take Me Home!".
I tried to wait. Honestly, I did. And I know better. Living up here for more than 3o years, I know there is always a sneaky frost.But, I was weak <sigh> and of course, after I bought a carload of plants yesterday, today it snowed.
Fortunately, I'm not STUPID so I did have everything covered up last night so hopefully they will be just fine.Thought you would enjoy some scenes from today's little snowburst. Started with some graupel and then snowflakes. Never heard of graupel? Learned about it when it 'snowed' at my sister's house in Orange County. Graupel, also called soft hail or snow pellets refers to what forms when supercooled droplets of water are collected and freeze on a falling snowflake, forming a 2-5mm size ball. Kinda looks like the old stuffing for beanbag chairs.<grin>. Of course, that didn't last long and then we got the real stuff, big snowflakes which are still falling outside as I type this.
The doggies are old hat to snow and quite disdainful of the beauty of it. To them it means they have to wear their SWEATERS.
