Silent Battle of The Night...

Standing in the doorway to my house, with the security lights on chatting to Louisa as we're reduced to rollies I noticed a silent battle raging on in the quietness of the night.

Mother Nature doesn't know whether she should make it snow or rain this night. So outside my warm bedroom windows she is leaving both to their own devices which is amounting to some confusion between the two. It's currently raining but with snow mixed in slowly falling to the earth only to dissolve upon contact of the damp ground. A degree or two cooler and I guess we'd have our first snowfall of winter in London Town this evening. Shame the ground is already so wet that the poor old snow won't stand much of a chance to settle unless Mother Nature really decides to let loose.

It wasn't like the sleet that i remember. That's usually a lot more like larger drops of rain/snow and leaves the ground slushy. This had defined snow flakes in amongst the rain falling at different speeds (which was entertaining to watch).

Most (although not all) of the definitions of sleet I can find on the web call sleet frozen ice pellets (which I always thought wa called hail - don't know the difference there...?). It certainly wasn't frozen ice pellets.

common usage where I was brought us is as being hal way between rain and snow, and/or both at once.
