Snow

Few things can romanticize a scene as effectively as a beautiful, heavy snowfall. Blizzards immediately get the adrenaline pumping. Whether you enjoy skiing in the Swiss Alps, or having coffee on a snowy winter's night on the Champs Elysee - this is the place to transcend where you are - and imagine yourself in a snowy wonderland.

Snowflakes

Did you know?

Every snowflake has its own unique shape and is different than all other snowflakes.

All snowflakes have six sides.

Snowflakes aren't always white. Years ago, when coal was used in factories and homes, snow was often gray. Why? Because the coal dust entered the air and was absorbed by the clouds.

In Prince Edward Island, Canada, where the soil is red clay, snowflakes often look pink. Why? Because red dust from the soil is blown into the air and absorbed by the clouds.

The largest snowflakes ever recorded fell in the state of Montana in the United States of America. The snowflakes were 15 inches in diameter.

The snow capital of the United States is Stampede Pass in Washington State. Each year, the average snowfall is 430 inches.

The average snowflake falls at a speed of 3.1 miles per hour.

Snirt is dirty snow that flies off the dusty Canadian prairies.

People buy more cakes, cookies and candies than any other food when a blizzard is in the forecast.

A blizzard occurs when you can't see for 1/4 mile. The winds are always 35 miles an hour or more. The storm must last at least 3 hours to be classed as a blizzard. If any of these conditions are less, it is only a snowstorm.

Billions of snowflakes fall during one short snowstorm.

Snowflakes are made up of ice crystals.
