Sleet Storm

Since my last post, we've had about 1 inch (2cm) of sleet. Because the temperature has been near 20F (-7C), the sleet is very dry and granular. The sleet is almost like sand. In fact, driving in is much like driving in sand too. It makes your vehicle squirm a bit as you drive along just like driving in deep sand would be.
The sleet is supposed to change back over to snow later tonight. If it changes over soon enough, we may get 6-8 inches of snow overnight. I just hope it does make the change. The heaviest precipitation should be in our area by 4am.
