A while back I watched a TV series that was called King of the Hill. I am sure you all have heard of it. I loved the show because me and Hank could have been brothers and it was all about Texas living.
In this one episode, It was winter and Hanks family and all his co-workers from the Propane store were having a BBQ outside in a nearby park. They were using tall propane area space heaters to stay warm and the show had the people in short sleeve shirts and shorts. Bobby (Hanks son) was standing there and he noticed something fell on his arm. He studied it for a second and said, "That's a funny looking ash". Peggy (Hanks wife) looked at Bobby's arm and said "Bobby, propane does not give off ash. That's not ash, that's snow!". The whole crowd stopped what they were doing turned and had fear in their eyes. Then with panic in her voice Peggy hollered out "Everyone stay calm, I have seen this once before and I know what to do". Then just like Texas drivers, everyone panicked, got in their cars and started sliding all over the roads.
I say all that because that was the first thing that came to mind this morning on my way into work. I was driving down the road when something started hitting my windshield. Usually I have to wash it once or twice on my way in from all the bug guts anyway but this was something different. I thought to myself "What is that?" as I studied the front glass for several seconds and then it hit me. It was sprinkles. Not enough to even turn on my wipers but they were there and it was wet.
The first thing I thought was "Don't panic, I have seen this before"
