It's a mPING Day - Meteorological Phenomena Identification Near the Ground

Been getting a mix all day, snow, sleet, freezing rain.

mPING is a free app for reporting current weather. I guess it’s the retired mariner’s equivalent of the Voluntary Observing Ship (VOS) Program.

Here’s the current reports for the entire U.S. The norther part of the Eastern Seaboard is lit up.
