Winter 2014-2015 Snowfall

Thursday November 13, 2014:
0.5 inch snow.

Wednesday November 26, 2014:
0.56 inch of rain, changed to snow early morning
3.9 inch snow.
Changed to graupel as it was ending.

Science experiment with the kids:

We cut a block of snow from outside, 12.5 by 9 by 7.5 cm, and computed the volume: 843.75 cm3. We shaved the top to make sure it was even.

Then we took the snow and weighed it, and came up with 160g.

We melted the snow and measured the volume, and got 160 ml (nice to see the agreement).

Then we computed the snow to liquid ratio: 843.75/160=5.27.

Our measured snow depth here was 3.9 inches, so that is 0.74 inches liquid. We got 0.56 inch of rain before it switched to snow. So rather impressive 1.3 inches of liquid total.
