Fall is my favorite season in Nyack and everywhere else. The cool, crisp air and the fresh apples have always been the best parts of the season for me. And, now I've learned how to make my own Apple
Do You Know What Graupel Is
Dated: January 6 2016
This was a new one on me, although I've seen Graupel many times before -- in Nyack and many other places.
Graupel is the snow that looks like little microbeads or styrofoam pellets. They bounce around and can break apart when they hit decks, sidewalks, streets.
This form of precipitation starts as snowflakes, then those snowflakes grow larger and larger as supercooled water funnels up into the clouds and bonds to the flakes. You can tell the difference between graupel and hail or sleet by picking up the tiny snowballs — if they’re soft and easy to crush, it’s graupel. In fact, graupel is often referred to as “soft hail.”
As you prepare for the oncoming winter months in Nanuet, Congers, Suffern, and Stony Point, this little tidbit of information may come in handy -- at least you can amaze your friends with the information!
