The Snow Capital of HA

POSTED BY Peg Johnson on Dec 15, 2010

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

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

The largest snowflake recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records fell at Fort Keogh, Montana and was 15 inches wide and 8 inches thick.

A snow storm becomes a blizzard when visibility is under 1/4 mile and the storm continues for more than 3 hours with winds of 35 mph.

When combined, windblown snow and black dirt make what is called snirt.
