As I look out my window at the darkening skies, I hear the faint pings at the window. I look out to see that the small pool of water, half ice, that rests on the covered swimming pool filled with ripples. It's a mix of rain and sleet outside. The storm is moving in quicker then expected, allowing for just enough cold air to create sleet. Now every time it begins to sleet I come across a number of people who believe it is hailing out! Although they're are just misinformed it still is annoying! So read the following link to learn the difference between sleet and hail! Hail or Sleet? There is a difference! and check out Crazy Hail Storm Videos to see the difference!

Marley enjoying the snowy weather! Marley is my dog, who loves to roll around in the snow! He gets just as excited about the snow as I do!
Storms not over yet but southern Connecticut seems to be the bulls eye for snow totals, almost 7.5 inches so far! Was only expecting 3-5 inches. I love when we get a little more than expected!

This winter is has been nothing like last year so far. Temperatures have been much warmer and most of the nation hasn't seen any snow. The scary thing about the first snow is usually everyone forgets how to drive in it! Here are some videos showing cars sliding all over the place on icy roads. The first video is the most recent from last week in West Virginia where a sudden snow squall created black ice on a highway. Warning the video has some inappropriate language for younger viewers.
First video just happend last week!
The Next video is from 2010 and shows a very icy hill!
One of the more impressive videos!
