In honor of how the weather have been lately (where I live that
is), here's some much needed words. (Yes, I know it overlaps
somewhat with earlier weekly vocabs.)
With this weather we've been having, autumn has surely begun.
The forecast says it'll rain all next week too.
There's been so much drizzle lately there's been no need to
... yet another valiant umbrella maimed beyond repair by the
5. mist, misty rain (as in: very fine drizzle)
Ugh, this mist is so fine and light that it blows upwards,
making umbrellas useless.
Sunrain can be very enjoyable on a hot day.
7. horizontal rain (big drops in steady, hard wind)
The horizontal rain stripped the paint off my house and ruined
I thought it was heavy rain at first, due to the sound, but
soon realized it had to be hail.
The raindrops were as big as grapes, I tell you!
10. black ice (invisible, very thin, very dangerous ice)
I had me this season's first pratfall thanks to that patch of
black ice at the bus-stop.
