Now, I realize that anyone that lives in a more Northerly climate will look at these photos and say to themselves 'What is the big deal here? There are only a few ice pellets on the ground. Those guys down in Austin are wimps!!' But, any type of frozen precipitation is kind of a big deal down here, so bear with me as I post pics of the sleet that fell in my yard last night...
It is in the 30's this morning with a North Wind blowing and the wind chill is at 26 degrees.
Sleet last night as the strong Northerly 30-35 mph winds blew the frozen pellets into my windows (I was shivering as I was snapping this photo, forgive me if it is a little blurry):
A blanket of sleet began to cover the lawn turning the backyard white:
And some pics from this morning. Some of the sleet melted since it was 81 degrees yesterday and the ground was still quite warm:
