I have fallen in love with your 3-liners 🙂
Thank you Indria
I’m smiling at the one green blade in the midst of the snow.
and naturally you would notice it! 🙂
okay, not to get all nerdy here, but…
sugar snow is cool. no, i mean it. its scientific name is graupel (there’s one for the scrabble board when you have an a,u and e that you don’t quite how to use). it’s formed when snow falls through a supercooled layer of water. the water gloms onto the snowflake but the conditions are just right that the water instantaneously crystalizes.
