Flaky Crystals Of Ice

There's a temptation to think of snow as something measured in inches, on account of it so often is. But I often think, while shoveling it, that I would like to receive its measurements in mass as well, since 2 inches of fluffy snow seems to weigh less than 1 inch of soggy snow.

When it comes to shoveling, it seems like mass must matter more than volume.

This morning's load was powdery fluff,
and that's how I prefer the stuff.
