Not Snow

Okay, so it's been cold. Rather cold in places it's very unfrequently that cold. Places like here in beautiful Daytona Beach.

But that stuff that some people claim they saw in the air yesterday was not snow. An Embry-Riddle professor of meteorology uses the term "snow like" in this story about the cold weather from the Daytona Beach News-Journal. Meanwhile, AccuWeather was calling it "ocean-effect snow": You know, like the "lake-effect snow" the weatherdrones on The Weather Channel go on about (and that people in upstate New York and the like know all about).

Anyway, I didn't see any snow or anything snow like, and I don't know anyone who actually did. (Thbbbpt!) Sounds more like a cold-induced mass hallucination to me.
