How Much Do You S'now About Snow?

  • It's a myth that no two snowflakes are the same. A scientist found two identical flakes from a storm in Wisconsin in 1988.
  • Each year in the U.S., an estimated 1 Septillion ice crystals fall from the sky. More specifically, 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 crystals.
  • There's a difference between snowstorms and blizzards. To be categorized as a blizzard, there must be 35mph winds and less than .25mi visibility.
  • Igloos really work! The insides of igloos can be almost 100 degrees warmer inside than outside.
