I got 8 /10, and disagree with the definition of white out. I found myself in one, and it didn’t seem to be windy.

This southern boy is NOT familiar with many of the terms in this puzzle. I did serve tours of duty with the Air Force in Michigan and Tidewater (southeast) Virginia where my family and I saw significant snowfall but never learned much of the terminology.

9/10 I would have never guessed it took an hour for a snowflake to hit the ground.

The close to the sun is ambiguous because it doesn’t differentiate between the hemisphere’s.
I’ll have a little whine with my cheese!

Where I live, the earth is closest to the sun in summer..northern hemisphere. Trick question depending on where you live in the world.

8 out of ten. And I learned something new for the 2 I got wrong. I have always loved winter and the snow until I think of the people and animals who suffer for it.

7/10. I should have done better. We’re in the tundra today. High of 11 and it’s 4 now. Brr.

I would think the time for a snowflake to fall would depend on conditions (wind, humidity, etc.). Also didn’t know about polyester/nylon having insulative value.

9/10. I should have gone with Joe Namath and his nylons keeping him warm under his football uniform!

Polyester or nylon is a wicking material. It allows moisture from the skin to escape to an outer layer thereby keeping the skin warmer. My son was in Boy Scouts and when you spend 24 hours (Zero Hero) out in below zero temperatures, you learn how to stay warm!

Amazed they did not have a question /statement about “Lake Effect” snow. Mainly a Great Lakes region winter weather issue. Just ask anyone from Buffalo, Watertown, Oswego, Erie, Grand Rapids, South Bend, etc. (lol)

Having spent forty years in Alaska as a bush pilot I can tell you a snow squall is just as described, and never referred to as whiteout. Whiteout is a totally different weather phenomenon. Whiteout does not always restrict horizontal visibility.
Is the snow flake falling from a cloud 1000 feet above the ground or 2000 feet or 10,000 feet above the ground? All are possible.

9/10. The only one I missed was the one asking how long for a snowflake to fall. What could one do but guess on a question like that? If they had said on average how long, that would have at least made sense. They might as well have asked, “How long is a piece of string?”

Started off with a correct followed by a good guess and two more corrects. Missed #5, #7, and to my consternation, #10, for 7 of 10.

8/10. Missed #7 & #10. As for #7, I do not like polyester or nylon directly on my skin.
