Julie Tenney, the Wadsworth Library children's supervisor, explains the Science of Snow to some eager children and their parents.

Mom, Connie Pepke, intently watches as 4 1/2-year-old Anne Pepke makes snowmen fizz. Also enjoying the manufactured snow are Genniver Yaggi, in the pink sweater, and her son, 6-year-old Johnny Yaggi. Hidden by Johnny's arm is 2-year-old Milo Bailey, who is playing in the snow by the side of sister 4-year-old Mia Bailey, while their dad, Mitch Bailey, watches them from a safe distance. Along the back wall are 7-year-old Milania Contrufo on the left, Kelly Contrufo and 5-year-old Dante Contrufo. Dad, Jeremy Grigsby, watches while 9-year-old Zane Grigsby throws snow in the air and 7-year-old Tzeitel Grigsby carefully cups snow in her hands.
