    It's not even really snow, it's like...little snowballs.

          My hope is that you can finally get rid of the anger in your heart, and fill it with peace, compassion, understanding, and a desire to uplift rather than suppress.

              at least the weather network is telling me that next sunday its going to be +22... though I'm sure that will be changed in a few days to a high of +3 and a 60% chance of snow

                I actually like all the moisture - it'll help "green" things up sooner.

                It is a bit too chilly from what I would like to see, though. I think if it was 10-15 degrees C it would be perfect.

                  Not when the city starts putting more sand down, it won't... I don't normally like to write this having grown up with too much of the stuff, but we need rain, and lots of it.

                        It's called gropple.

                        gropple
                        A weather term, referring to a light, hail-like snow.
                        The forecast is calling for rain changing over to gropple, with sleet and hail mixed in.

                          There are lots of types:

                          I remember learning a bit about the many Inuit names in the great Danish novel "Smillas Sense of Snow".

                            Now with the bright sun blaring down while fluffy snow is still falling (!) there is a lot of steam emanating off of the streets and rooftops.

                            It all looks pretty bizarre out my window right now.

                              I didn't know this word existed just 1 minute ago, and I already love it. We should invent a drink based on this name, something made in Edmonton and appropriate to the name. Suggestions?
