Dry rain

British weather is truly miserable. For the past three days, it has been snowing over here. Wow, you might say, what is so miserable about snow? Well, the problem is that it is not proper snow. Yet it is not quite sleet either. Its clumps of snow and rain; if you were to look up, you'd see snow dancing and pirouetting around in the air in the middle of lancing arrows of rain.

All jolly well and good, if the damn snow actually stays on the ground. But no, it hits the ground and melts almost instantaneously. Its just as if its dry rain (damn, what an oxymoron). On the other hand, there's always the opportunity to freeze your whole body off when walking a hundred metres in the dry rain from a building to another with nothing more than a thin first layer and a laboratory coat.
