Strange ice pellet storm this afternoon. Not sure what to call it, not really hail, not quite sleet. Just little pellets of ice that piled up and looked like snow for about three minutes. Then it turned to rain and they all melted immediately. Pretty odd weather for Portland in the spring, I'd expect this in Indiana or other places East, but not here in the land of the soul-crushing drizzle. Forecasters are calling for snow in the hills for tomorrow's commute, snow level down to 800 ft. Sounds like an amusing traffic report with my morning coffee.
