Hello, holidays! Today is the First Day of HMNS – for the next 12 days, we’ll be featuring another fun video of a holiday museum activity here on the blog (or, you can get a sneak peek at all the videos on 12days.hmns.org – we won’t tell).
For our first video, we wondered about snow – something we were shocked to see falling here in Houston on Dec. 4 – the earliest recorded snowfall in local history. So, we asked Gene Norman, Chief Meteorologist at KHOU, to explain a few things. Like: why is snow white? Are all snowflakes really unique? And – will we see snow falling in Houston again this year?

Visit the Gene Norman Weather Center at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, a one-of-a-kind interactive exhibit, where kids and parents can conduct a live weather forecast in precisely the same manner as Norman does on the local news each evening.
