Fitting Weather

It's fitting that on the day I post about Snoranges that the skies would also open up with another of my word inventions: Snail.

Yes, it "snailed" for a few moments today. Have you figured it out yet?

Snail is like hail only instead of little ice balls, it's little snowballs.

I love it when it's snailing. The little white snowballs coming down from the sky sound more like rain than hail. They're softer than hail and their sound is more muted. And it's fun seeing them accumulate on the ground, the porch and steps. They remind me of those little white styrofoam balls you'd find in bean bag chairs. Minus all the static electricity.

So, how fitting is that? That on the day I post about Snoranges, it also Snailed and I could tell you about both in the same day?
