Forecast

You know how a 5-day forecast will have a temperature, an icon, and a short description of the day's weather? Well around these parts, the forecast doesn't just say "snow" or "chance of rain". Its more like this (these are all real):

Monday: Ice pellets
Tuesday: Freezing fog
Wednesday: Flurries
Thursday: Freezing drizzle
Friday: Wintry mix

So better watch out for that freezing fog. And what kind of cop-out is "wintry-mix"? To me its still just "cold".
