5 Cool Facts You Didn’t Know About Snow

Winter isn’t everyone’s favorite season, but there’s no denying that the initial snowfall covering everything in a white blanket can make things look pretty. There’s more to those small flakes that fall from the sky than you think, especially with how a lot of them are made. Here’s some of the amazing record snowfalls that you’ll find across the US, and learn the reasoning behind how snow isn’t really white and they aren’t like what we made out of paper in school growing up.

5. Biggest Snowflake Ever
It’s been since 1887, but no snowflake has ever defeated the large 15-inch smacker that fell in Fort Keogh, Montana. That’s according to the Guinness World Records.

4. Snow Echoes Voices
Believe it or not, you can hear people from far away in Antarctica thanks to snow. Due to the flat snow that’s packed in, sound waves bounce at a much higher frequency than in the United States. Voices can be heard up to a mile away.

3. Snowflakes Aren’t That Pretty
Growing up, we believe that snowflakes are these beautiful pieces of art that we imitate by cutting up a folded piece of paper. That’s not really the case. Snowflakes are actually just a mash of symmetrical crystals stuck together.

2. You Can’t Trigger Avalanches
Despite numerous accounts in TV shows and movies, people cannot cause an avalanche if they yell or create other kinds of extremely loud noises. Mountains can’t hold on to everything, and there’s always the risk of it finally letting go when people are skiing on it.

1. Each Snowflake Has A Story
Anytime you see a blizzard, remember that every snow crystal you see flying around has its own story. Each snowflake has a particle that could be from anywhere in the world. It could be a piece of ash or dust from the environment.
