They call what's currently falling from the sky "wintry mix". This means it includes snow, rain, freezing rain, sleet. It might be simpler just to call it guck. At least it's better than oobleck. But not a whole lot better. Since we didn't get out early enough this morning to beat the arrival of the guck, we haven't yet obtained this year's Christmas tree. We'll get one later in the week when things have dried out a bit.
