Snow Globe Snow

This is the snow that fell Friday, very light and granular. It looked like rock salt, and was easier to sweep than shovel. I'm sure there's a technical name for this kind of snow - we're calling it "snow globe snow."

  4. That's funny. It looks like a cross between sleet and snow.

  5. Snow globe snow is a perfect title for me. It does look like something you'd sprinkle on ffod.

  6. That's sure what it looks like! I didn't even realize that snow had different textures. Interesting. I've learned something new today!

  7. Not having snow here in Sydney (although it shouldn't be assumed that it doesn't snow in Australia, it does -- look up "the Snowy Mountains"!! But Sydney doesn't snow, that's for sure. Sigh), I find the texture and shape and size of the snow in this photo fascinating.

    I swear I'm going to the Snowy Mountains next winter just to touch the snow!
