The virtual cold spell continues here at Berlitz WordMaster, and here's another remarkable winter fact for you to think about as you huddle by the fire: A man once claimed to have found a snowflake that was 38 centimeters (15 inches) wide. It fell (crashed?) in Fort Keogh, Montana, in 1887. Imagine trying to catch that on your tongue!

Today's Lesson
