Snow Thread!

Snow Thread!

This is a thread to talk about frozen precipitation consisting of hexagonally symmetrical ice crystals that form soft, white flakes. I am currently sittinng on a couch, totally worn out because I spent the last 2 hours shoveling my driveway and two neighbors driveways. But still I had fun out there because I also went sledding in our front yard. In other words, my siblings and I moved a couple inches... and then fell off our sleds. Anyways, as I said ... er ... wrote ... er ... typed before this is the thread to talk agout frozen precipri- oh, forget it.

Where I live it's pretty cold, but it's only snowed a couple of inches this winter. I like snow, but I don't want too much because I walk part of the way to school!

We have a snow day today because there's so much snow! It's been snowing since 2 am or so, and doesn't show any sign of stopping...

My first snow for this year was on the third, and it was so weird. 

In the morning when my dad was driving me to school, it was raining incredibly hard, thundering, and was windy. When I got to school, the power flickered, and then went out for an hour. Students got turned down, and school was going to end early and then...Lights turn back on! My class got no learning done in that one hour, but it was okay. We started learning again and then at about 11:00, I looked out the window and...SNOW! They were nice big flakes, and all of the rain/sleet/frozen rain/whatever original precipritation it was had all turned to snow. It went on like this for a couple of hours, but the ground was so warm that it unfortunately didn't stick. At least my teacher let us outside for a couple of minutes to experience the weather. It stopped snowing at 2:00ish, but then started mixed with rain again at 2:30-40ish. It stayed like this up until 3:00, I think, possibly longer because I was at piano lessons by then. And after piano, it was sunny and you couldn't even tell it had snowed! 

Oh yeah, and school had a two hour delay on Tuesday, because ice. Two trees feel down in our yard, one on Sunday from a wind storm that was the snowy front coming in, and then another on the snow day above while I was at school. A few neighbors lost trees too, but no one was harmed thankfully. 

AND that is my snow day!
