    Rumour has it it is going to snow around here tomorrow, if it hasn't already!

    I love the snow.

    Is anyone prepared for the arctic conditions? I am! :)

    No snow here, either.

    Frost is settling in for sure, and it's freezing out there. Still, where's the snow? :confused:

    I've never understood that phrase. How cold is it in the arctic circle? It still snows...

    (stands back and waits for the meteorologists to jump in)

    I hate this weather. I hate being cold 24/7. I'm never warm despite wearing so much wool I wouldnt dare visit wales, I thought Thermals were meant to keep you warm? How? by Burning them? I hate this country cold. Cant we drag it nearer the equator?

    NO! The cold is fantastic!! The heat is awful, when you're hot, it's really difficult to get cool again, you always end up getting too hot again. BUT, when you're too cold, just stoke up the fire, turn up the thermostat and put on a lovely thick warm jumper. I love the winter, may it never end. Oh that would be great like in a Narniaesq situation, where it was always winter and occasionaly Christmas. That way there would be snow all the time.

    Errr hi.

    How Do Snowflakes Form?

    Snowflakes are a particular form of water ice. Snowflakes form in clouds, which consist of water vapor. When the temperature is 32° F (0° C) or colder, water changes from its liquid form into ice. Several factors affect snowflake formation. Temperature, air currents, and humidity all influence shape and size. Dirt and dust particles can get mixed up in the water and affect crystal weight and durability. The dirt particles make the snowflake heavier, and can cause cracks and breaks in the crystal and make it easier to melt. Snowflake formation is a dynamic process. A snowflake may encounter many different environmental conditions, sometimes melting it, sometimes causing growth, always changing its structure.

    Can it be too cold to snow?

    In actuality, earth's troposphere is not too cold to snow but rather it is "too dynamically stable to snow". Dynamic stability may be present due to low-level cold air advection, a lack of upper level divergence, and/or a lack of low level convergence. Also, if dynamic lifting does occur it may not produce precipitation that reaches the surface due to low relative humidity values in the lower troposphere.


    Any of that make any sense or do I have to Englishify it?

    I am sorry Terry but you are wrong. So here's the real science bit (shakes hair like in hair colour advert) ... Snow flakes are drandruff from the gods (ye gods of olde!), super frozen just because they like it that way. Why would they drop their dandruff on us, well go ask an ant, and you'll get your answer. I do all the time. Smart little things ants.

    And whilst I make my escape, I will leave you with the almighty snow dance (much funkier than common rain dance) and hope that it works in time for Christmas day :p
