An old pilot friend of mine told me today a story that I thought was interesting.
He said that he was flying into Wichita, KS a couple decades ago and was listening to the ATIS when the weather report indicated snerd. He called up the approach controller and asked what snerd was and the controller stated it was a mixture of the blowing snow and dust coalescing making a big mess. The pilot stated he broke out of the clouds and all he saw was a brown mess all over the place.
Does anyone know if this is actually called snerd? If not, what is the correct term?
