8/10 I would think that Buffalo, NY, with lake effect snow, would be snowier than Syracuse, but, that's a Chicago kid talking (I had a buddy in the Army who was from the Buffalo area, he would just laugh when I mentioned how much snow we got each year. "A light dusting", was his response.) I got Barrow, AK wrong, too, since it is on the ocean (even if it's the Arctic Ocean) I thought the water would moderate the temperature somewhat and some place mid-continent, like International Falls, MN would be colder.

10/10. I've never lived in snow country, and only visited on a couple of occasions during 79 years, so had to apply a little reasoning.

shootit, I agree. Maybe someone checked a bunch of snowflakes but there are bunches left unchecked. Never say never.

I got 10 out of 10. Not bad as I have lived in Africa for 70+ years and only seen snow here twice.

8 of 10. One I got wrong and maybe question is snowfall in cities with populations over 100,000 people. If it was US cities I could believe that, but is it true for all cities world wide? In Russia or Norway or Nepal or???

shootit, I totally agree with you on this one! The "no 2 snowflakes are exactly the same" is one of the most annoying claims in "science."

7/10 Irma, you are correct about the number of layers, however, they should be loosely fitting. I also agree about Syracuse not being the correct answer for snowiest city. The city with the greatest snowfall varies each year so giving one city without a specific year does not make a good question. I have lived in Upstate NY for over 50 years and am very aware of the competition each winter between a number of cities for this title.

How can they know no two flakes are the same? Have they seen every flake? No, of course not.
