It has certainly been a snow-filled year for many parts of the nation. Whether you got only a sprinkling of snow or an extreme downfall, test your winter knowledge skills to see how much you know about the frosty flakes!

Test Yourself!

1. If you have been out in the cold and are afraid that you have frostbite, you should rub the affected area with snow. True or False?

2. How many sides does a regular snow crystal have?
a. Four
b. Five
c. Six

3. Car A and Car B are traveling down ice-glazed roads at the same speed in two different locations. The temperature where Car A is traveling is 30 degrees Fahrenheit; the temperature where Car B is traveling is 0 degrees Fahrenheit. The drivers of both cars hit the brakes at exactly the same moment. If both the cars and the roads they travel are otherwise identical, which car will come to a stop first? (Hint: Hitting a tree doesnâ€™t count.)

4. Weâ€™ve all heard of snow blindness, a condition caused by sunlight reflecting off snow. But what percentage of the Sunâ€™s rays is actually reflected back from freshly fallen snow?
