I've long harbored an irrational intellectual curiosity about what would happen if, rather than drifting down in tiny, unique little flakes, snow fell upon the ground as a single blanket. If nothing else, the resounding 'whoomp' of a good 8-inch single-event snowfall strikes me as something I'd like to witness.
According to the physics website 'What If?', a scattered rainstorm that would normally drop 6 cm over a 100 km/sq area would, if consolidated into a single large drop would demolish all structures in a 20-30km radius.
Sure, a consolidated raindrop isn't the same thing as a fluffy blanket of snow, but I'm not prepared to take the chance of being flattened by a metric fuckton of snow. Consider my curiosity slaked.
