New word: the flurry!

Tuesday May 27, 2008 @ 11:59 AM (UTC)

Usually I wouldn’t post another vocab discovery so soon – I like a little more variety in my blog stew – but weather-obsessed grizelda taught me the word graupel. This is obviously a word whose time has come, and that time is SCRABBLE TIME.

Graupel is a form of precipitation formed when water freezes onto existing snowflakes to form balls of ice.

Obscure, yet tasty!
