      The first snow fell this year on September 13 last - 19 September. Here, too, the difference can be traced in time - 6 days!

      And an interesting phenomenon happened to winter this year in the middle of summer!

    • Our first generalizations and conclusions!

      Pupils in class 5 MBOU "School №2" city Muravlenko first year engaged in the association "Young environmentalists - researchers of nature," Children's Creativity Center.

      December 15, 2014 we held the first study of snow cover in the Center.

      The group was divided into mini-teams and measure the depth of snow in different parts of the site.

      South-east section

      North-eastern section

      North-western section

      If we compare the average values ​​of the depth of the snow, the north-eastern section of the depth of 49 cm, in the south-east - 39 cm, and in the north-west of 31 cm.

      It is possible that the depth of snow cover affects the wind direction, which can carry snow from one part of the site to another.

      And the guys said that in the northwestern part of the area is snow very uneven. Drifts above about trees and the fence. And in the middle section of the snow layer is very thin - see here has an impact on the heat pipes that pass through the area of ​​the boiler.

    • Dear friends!

      I think that in addition to study the depth of snow cover, we can try to collect folk omens associated with snow cover and discuss them.

      For example, I was interested in such a sign "If zaporoshen October snow, spring snow for a long time will not leave the field." It was in October this year in Moscow was unusually snowy. On the other hand I am sure that there are regions where snow falls in September. Possible for them this sign does not work.

      And what signs do you know?
