It's been snowing hard all day today. But that's okay. It's melting as soon as it hits the ground. It's all the prettiness with none of the dangers.
I seem to remember reading or hearing that all(most?) precipitation starts as snow, up in the clouds where it's cold enough for that sort of thing. It's just that, during warm weather, the snow melts way before it hits the ground and so we get rain.
I think it would be really cool if water would take a little longer to melt. Just long enough that it would always snow. It would never rain. Even in the hottest part of the Summer, precipitation would fall as snow, and then melt after it had hit the ground.
It would be very pretty all the time. Rain is so boring and depressing to watch.
Somebody should look into making this happen.
