We have a winner!Regular readers (bless your hearts) may recall that in this space yesterday we asked readers for the name of precipitation that isnt snow, isnt hail and isnt sleet. We got a quick reply from Eric Hill, the general manager of Vail Mountain Coffee & Tea Co. Using just a little profanity which we cheerfully accepted in the spirit it was given Hill reminded us that what we saw Friday was called graupel, which actually sounds more like an Austrian breakfast food.For his quick, cheerful reply, Hill wins a random Vail Daily T-shirt in something close to his size.Thanks, Eric!
