Caption: *'Dippin Dots'. So why did it look different? Well, I'd argue a lot of what we were calling sleet was,* according to Steve Caparotta our local meteorologist, *actually graupel...something fairly uncommon for our part of the world. Graupel essentially refers to snow crystals that have been coated with supercooled droplets of water that form a layer of ice over the snow crystal.* these are only a millimeter or two at most in size.
