What little facts can I find for you today?
- It takes about a million tiny snow crystals to make up one snowflake
- According to the Guiness Book of Records, the biggest snowflake was seen in 1887 and was 15 inches wide and 8 inches thick. That sounds impossible to me...
- The most snow to fall in a season was in 1998/1999 when 1,140 inches of snow fell on Mount Baker, Washington State.
- A single snowstorm can drop 39 million tonnes of snow. That's the equivalent of 120 atomic bombs.
- Scientists believe there are 5 basic shapes of snowflake, but of course there are infinite variations within those shapes. It is a myth that no snowflakes are identical though - shapes depend on the temperature and conditions in which they are formed.
- And lastly... we Brits see this video every year at Christmas, it's on TV without fail. But what can be more fitting for the freezing weather than the Snowman? Enjoy...!
