On snow science.

“Miss V—-! It’s snowing outside!”
“I know, I know.”
“We’re going to have a white January 6th!”
“Yeah, but it’s not going to stick.”
“Why would you say that? Don’t you want it to stick?”
“Well, sure, I want to believe that it will, but the ground isn’t frozen, so when it hits the concrete, the warmth of the ground will melt it almost immediately, which could cause it to eventually freeze as ice and make the roads more slippery. So yes, I wish it would stick, too, because it would probably be just a little bit safer. But even the snow you see sitting on the grass will eventually melt as the heat radiates up through the roots.”
“Science ruins everything.”
