The snow we had was two days ago, yet there's still patches of it laying on the ground here and there, particularly on the grass in the shade. Snow itself is pretty rare here, and the idea of snow staying for days on end is practically unheard of.
To take a closer look, I converted my camera into basically a microscope and peered down. The snow had sorta melted and fused itself into ice crystals. It's now harder and chunkier, but at least it still tastes good.
