OK a slightly misleading title for this post. It should be " Why I hate Sleet" as the best thing about snow is that it isn't sleet!
Sleet, which has made a nasty comeback today, has no redeeming features! You can't sculpt it of put blades on a skate on it like ice. You can't fall on your back and make angels out of it, nor can you shape it into grenade sized balls and throw it at passing schoolchildren or make a snowman out of it.
Nope sleet is just cold, wet and painful. More so if you have just had record high temperatures for the time of year and have misplaced your beanie!! Yuk!
