|Sleet: the Rodney Dangerfield|
|Sleet will never be as famous|
as rain or snow.
|Even Currier & Ives dissed sleet!|
Even when it stops raining and snowing, the love affair continues. After it rains, there’s a chance you’ll see a beautiful rainbow. After it snows, children frolic and build snowmen. After it sleets, all that’s left is a bunch of slush. Still, I suppose things could be worse for sleet. It could be graupel -- a form of granular snow pellets I’ve never heard of before. Has anyone ever heard of graupel?!? Even my spell check doesn’t know what the hell it is! I guess if sleet is a meteorological Middle Child, graupel is an orphan.
