If you live in a place where wintery precipitation is common, you’ll likely think this is the dumbest blog post ever. Winter is my second favorite season, but here in central North Carolina rain is usually the only thing that falls from the sky. On the rare occasion that even the tiniest bit of winter weather comes to town I get unreasonably excited.
Today it’s sleeting!
Sleet isn’t nearly as beautiful or as much fun as snow, but I do like it.
I like the sparkling icicles it makes.
I like the quiet tinkling noise it makes bouncing off the roof and windows.
Most of all I like that it makes everything look like a big sugarcoated gumdrop.
