Now that Winter Storm Draco (yes, the National Weather Service has decided to name winter storms just like hurricanes) has moved out of the midwest and is headed to the northeast, (I’ve got quite a pile of white stuff here in Wisconsin and our marketing gal in Iowa has a foot of snow at her place!) I thought it might be fun to share some wacky facts about snow!
molecules of water in the average snowflake.
the width of the biggest snowflake ever recorded
amount of snow Stampede Pass, WA receives annually
how many all snowflakes have
circumference of largest snowball ever made
most snowfall recorded in one year at one location
record amount of snowfall recorded in a 24 hr period, Silver Lake, CO in 1921
…. I found these facts in my son’s “Boy’s Life” magazine. Hope you all found them as cool as I did!
