What is a blizzard?

A blizzard is a severe snowstorm that usually has very cold temperatures and very high winds.

When a blizzard comes, it normally makes driving and walking very dangerous for people; and it is also hard for people to see where they are going.

Blizzards also can create a wind chill effect that can be very dangerous.

People should never eat snow because it lowers the body temperature.

The blowing winds at low-temperatures can give a person frostbite.

If someone ever does get stuck in a blizzard, he should stay in a car. Some people walk in the blinding snow which can get them stranded in the middle of nowhere.

Blizzards can cause high snow drifts due to the blowing of the wind.

A blizzard is one of the most dangerous kinds of weather there is. One of the worst blizzards is The Schoolhouse Blizzard that happened in 1888. It stranded many children in their schoolhouse. About 235 people died in that blizzard.
