      Snow forms in the clouds when there is moisture and low temperatures. Tiny ice crystals form.
      When these tiny ice crystals collide they stick together in clouds to become snowflakes. If enough ice crystals stick together, they’ll become heavy enough to fall to the ground.

      There was lots of snow at my house this morning. Did you have snow too?
