I think it was 1977....
Well, you obviously do not live in Upstate New York, Michigan, Wisconsin, North Dakota, Montana, Colorado, etc.

Grapple use to be known as corn snow. It's like little pellets of snow. Can't tell you anything technical about it however.

Exactly! We have a weatherman here that seems to love the term. Now when local station is advertising for the news between evening shows they show this particular weatherman using this term over and over and over. Makes us chuckle. I had not heard the term, nor do I remember having this type of snow from my childhood in Colorado.

thanks!

I once heard a weather man use a term for lightening that was unfamiliar so I looked it up. It meant intra cloud lightening--not cloud to cloud or cloud to earth. Now I cannot find it. Any weather-fans have an idea?

You must have had the same weathman from NY. He liked that word alot. He explained it as snow & rain mixed together but it wasn't sleet because of the texture.

So I headed into town after work to a fancy dress shop and got a grass skirt, a lei and a Hibiscus flower for my hair. I will team this up with our cruise shirt, flip flops and a pair of earrings from Hokey Donut.

Congrats on getting your docs. Hope mine isn't far behind. Have fun tomorrow.

Thank you Ella and SerbianPrincess!

I think I have a medium sized draw string back that might work and I will hopefully remember to add ties. Time to remake my packing list.

So, it is okay to use something like a backpack?

I would love to buy one but it is going to be a very long time before we cruise again, and next time there will be children with us. ^_^
