On Thursday, February 21st, at about 12:40, ice started falling from the sky. However, this was no ordinary ice-this was snow! Or so everyone thought. It is probable that this was a form of precipitation called sleet. Sleet is a mixture of rain and partially melted snow, so depending on the person you ask, they may say it was snowing, raining, hailing, sleeting, or some combination of them. Regardless who you ask, they will likely say that California definitely needs precipitation, whether rain, sleet, or if we are lucky, snow.
