I went out saturday around 1pm and it was sleeting on me lightly. I got to the stand and it stopped but around 3pm it started again. It sleeted pretty good for about a half an hour but nothing really hard. Then stopped again. I got down from my stand around 5:15pm and it was beautiful out b/c it just started to show and you could see it coming down all around you in the almost-darkness. Talk about beautiful and breathtaking. It's amazing the things you witness when outdoors.
