it does indeed - sleet is the one in between rain and snow, not quite one nor the other. It usually happens when the weather has warmed up a fraction so the snow flakes don't survive the whole journey through the sky and have started to melt by the time they get to the ground. As sleet is warmer than snow it very slightly increases the temperature of the snow that has settled, so melting it.View Thread
Same here but the sleet got in the way of having a snow day today by melting it all before they could panic.I am hoping they get scared about the ice due over the next few days and shut the uni. Could certainly do with an unexpected day off *fingers crossed*View Thread
Oh I like the cold, but cold, crisp, sunny and dry - not the cold, wet and dull that is the norm here, although snow is preferable to any of the above. I was watching people today and thinking how funny it is that when it snows people don't bother with umbrellas and but if it was raining as hard as it was snowing everyone would be scurrying around trying not to get wet. Humans are funny things sometimes!
I didn't take any photos (I can't find the lead to download them from my phone and I couldn't find my camera this morning either grrrr) It was coming down in great big fat flakes at lunchtime but sadly there had been a whole load of sleet before that so none of the snow settled
There is more forecast later in the week so may have better luck then.View Thread
I just wanted to pop by and say Hi and Happy New Year to everyone. I haven't been around for a while but that doesn't mean I don't think of you all.
I got really excited that we were going to get snow but it turns it is going to hit another part of the country instead so I am just going to have wait with fingers crossed that we will get some (getting bored of rain, rain, rain)
I know it has been a while. I have been very busy and trying to carry on with life. I have started a new job at the uni - I now get paid for doing stuff there
I have an assignment due in soon for my teaching qualification and have work to get ready for an exhibition.
I finished my DBT sessions a few weeks ago and although I am managing to get by I can feel things slipping. I just found myself scrolling through the site looking for 'tigger' posts. It is almost like I want to trigger myself. have been thinking about doing stuff but I know I also don't want to screw up everything I have been working for.
Hi guys lurking here and there. been busy with stuff to the point I don't know where to turn or what to do first. started a new job today, supporting a student with serious pain issues. hoping it will be ok. started psychotherapy recently - scary stuff! nearly finished with my DBt individual sessions, only 3 left - also scary. Have a presentation to do next week about a research project for my teaching qualification and I haven't done a thing, can't concentrate. worrying lots.
anyway at least I have been so busy I have managed to stay clear of actually sh'ing, lots of urges but have managed to stay strong.View Thread
