Neither cold nor warm–
wint’ry mix weather, I think.
Snow plus rain is snain.

Looked at the street light—
confirmation of snow-rain.
Technical term—snain.

Dampness in the air
makes it feel so cold outside —
snain on horizon.

Snow, hail, snain, and rain —
pretty much describes the day

Snain falls this morning —
a combo of snow and rain —
or slush from the sky.

A wintery mix
covers the trees — we call it
snain (snow mixed with rain).
