The answer to "What is the difference between sleet, hail and freezing rain?" is that sleet is frozen rain, while hail is a chunk of ice that falls during a thunderstorm. Freezing rain is liquid rain the freezes when it hits a surface. The answer to "Which is more dangerous for trees and power lines, 1 inch of ice or 1 inch of wet snow?" is that 1 inch of ice is heavier than wet snow, potentially bringing down trees and power lines.
The answer to "Can snow fall when skies are clear?" is "yes." When temperatures reach the single digits or colder, ice crystals can sometimes form and fall with no clouds present. An additional trivia question is the true or false statement "It must be 32 degrees Fahrenheit or colder for snow to fall." The answer is false.
