I hear it falling out there, and the deck is getting covered with hard little white objects.
Been warm and rainy. Winter softening us up for the big freeze later this month or Feb.

What you are describing is sleet, ice pellets, and/or grauple.

Freezing rain is when it rains (liquid water) and then freezes when it hits the ground forming an icy shell over everything.

shadow, I stand corrected. Although in this area of western mass, the precipitation in winter has shape-shifting qualities worthy of the X-Men, or the mythical (?) Coyote. At this moment it seems to be snowing. 20 minutes from now, who knows?

I had to look it up.:
"Grauple: Soft, opaque hail with a snowflake-like stucture that bounces off of hard surfaces. Also refered to as snow pellets."

You don't want freezing rain. It happens when saturated moist warm air over-runs a thin layer of cold air near the surface. It results in this:

Yo,
Baby Tats!
Your pictures remened me of a couple winters past. I used to work in Waterford NY, about 70 miles away, and I remember driving back and forth after an ice storm. Broken limbs all over the place. Sort of scary, wondering how the trees would survive.
