Tiny Snow Flakes Now Mixed with Tiny Ice Rain

12:00pm update:
because I'm too tired to create a whole new post. just back in from whacking branches. the tiny ice spheres are still falling, but the larger flakes have returned. I took the dog out this time, the snow is nearly to the top of my rubber boots and the dog is plowing through with her chest. I haven't seen snow like this since the last time I went up to the pass to sled. That's not what it reminded me of though, I remembered the knee and thigh deep snow when I was a kid on the east coast. It's absolutely silent outside, my world is one giant sound baffle.

I've been going out each hour to knock snow off branches that overhang the power line to the house, this time the teeny flakes have returned, and are mixed with teeny frozen spheres. The effect is like diamonds and glitter falling from heaven. It's beautiful, but if it keeps up I'm afraid I won't be able to keep up with weight on the branches. The window thermometer says 28 degrees, MSN sidebar finds 23 right now, 10:37pm.

Here is how the snowfall stacks up since 2pm when it began to fall.






The radar looks as if things might begin to let up soon, let's hope so eh?

Throughout the database, passages containing false statements by the top Bush administration officials are highlighted in yellow. The 935 false statements in the database may also be accessed by selecting the “False Statements” option from the “Subject” pull-down menu and may be displayed within selected date ranges using the selection tool below.
