or sneet, or possibly even snain. As I wandered about the dogyard yesterday, I was wondering how new words get into common usage and where the word sleet came from. Yes, it was that delightful weather mix of rain and snow, with differing periods of dominance for those two types of water. Long spells of mostly rain were followed by snow flurries and then later on it started to snow properly.
Spookily, ( sorry, it’s the Halloween thing), I just realised that exactly one year and one day ago, we woke up to our first proper snowfall in Alaska. Now, 366 days later, we woke up to our first proper snowfall of the season.
