Some parts of the Earth is closest to the Sun in winter.
The coldest temperature ever recorded during a UK winter was -27.2 °C. I don’t think we can complain this morning at -1 °C.
The winter of 1963 is one of the coldest on record and the coldest on since 1740. This was 14 years before BenchMaster was born.
The Southern Hemisphere typically has milder winters than the Northern Hemisphere.
Snowflakes come in all sizes. The MD of BenchMaster said ‘’Not a mile big!’’ After carrying out some research the biggest snowflake on record was recorded in Montana in 1887 at 15 inches.
Some of the coldest places in the world are Russia, Finland and Mongolia.
The largest recorded snowman ever built was in Bethel, Maine in 2008. You may ask how big? well the biggest snowman is actually a snowWoman at 37.32m. This roughly equates to 18 of our workbenches.
Ten inches of snow melts down to only one inch of water.
