Snow, Snow, Snow!!!
Snow (an uncountable noun) is made up of millions of individual snowflakes . Each snowflake is unique. No two snowflakes look the same. Of course, snowflakes are so tiny that it's impossible to compare them, but every schoolchild learns that each snowflake is unique!
When the snow falls softly , it is beautiful! If the snow falls for a short period of time, it's called flurries , or a snow flurry . If the wind starts blowing the snow all over the place for a long period of time, it's called a snowstorm . When the wind starts blowing the snow so fast that you can't see anything in front of you for a long period of time, it's a blizzard . Finally, if one minute it is peaceful outside, and then all of a sudden the wind is furiously and violently blowing the snow everywhere, it's a snow squall .
Snow does not make a sound as it falls from the sky and lands on the ground. However, you make a lot of noise when you walk on snow. The colder it is outside, the more sound snow makes! Below 0° Celsius, snow that is packed on the ground squeaks beneath your feet. When there is more snow and the snow has turned to ice, it crunches when you walk on it!
Snow feels cold! It's hard to feel snow, though, because snowflakes melt and turn into water as soon as they touch your skin. Sometimes, if the snowflakes are clumped together, they stay for a little while. Have you seen The Sound of Music? One of Maria's ‘favourite things’ is…
