I am getting settled in Ann Arbor and am enjoying exploring southeast Michigan and sharing some of my photos. Now I have a new camera that I am trying to learn as well as learn to take better photographs. Wunderground is a great opportunity to see great pictures and learn from the rest of you. I always enjoy seeing all the beautiful photo from around the world.Create your own visitor map!

Caption: It's not. It's Graupel. Here is a definition from the Precipitation Identification Near the Ground project (PING): Graupel/snow grains are like bits of frost you might scrape off of a freezer or, alternatively, tiny bits of Styrofoam. They are white and sometimes shaped like tiny Apollo capsules. Graupel particles tend to be very light, fall more slowly than ice pellets, and can be easily crushed under finger pressure. They're literally grains of snow. I must admit this was a new term to me.
