By 2 pm the ground was pretty much free of all snow, but Matthew made the most of the snow in the morning. (And it was the first time since Monday I was able to break into our mailbox.)
I still can't believe we had enough to play in.
Since we did get snow, we collected a cup full for the Winter Wednesday Snow challenge and some more to melt and pour through a coffee filter.
While we waited, Matthew warmed up with hot cocoa.
Once melted down, we discovered that our cup of snow was actually 1/4 c. of liquid! (And very dirty, I'm going to say it may have been the operator...) What a difference! When we poured our melted snow into a coffee filter, we discovered that there was dirt in our snow. Not alot, but there was definitely reddish dirt particles. It didn't photo well so you'll just have to trust us.
And that's the end of our 1/2 a day of snow!
