This iReport is part of an assignment:
Pizza-Pizza, Snow-Snow, Sandy Springs, Georgia. See Weather Questions at the bottom.
Keep watching and you will see a Winter Wonderland snow fall in T minus 4 minutes and 30 seconds. The off again, on again snow flurry action was hard to catch. So, when the pizza delivery dude arrived exactly when the snow started, we did not prolong eating the pizza nor did we miss playing in the snow.
The first delivery pizza vehicle broke down. It took the second pizza man so long to deliver the pizza that we were suffering from actsillyinthesnowglycemia. I love the snow. I wish we could have gotten more but we made use of what we had as we danced and sang in the snow while eating pizza. Let it be known that filming the snow while eating pizza is sort of tricky.
The flurries ranged from light medium heavy to blizzard at different intervals so be sure to watch the end for the big finale!
WEATHER QUESTIONS BELOW: Can someone answer these?
All aspects of this video are depicted in chronological order in a time frame of possibly approx. 1 hour and 12 minutes. Actual clips consist of approx. 21 minutes of raw footage, which was edited to be approx. five minutes. The analysis captures changes in the wind, temperature, and snowfall: velocity, direction, speed, and snowflake composition (large/small-flakes), which results in other weather conditions such as the whiteout effect, the wind-chill factor, and flurry-to-blizzard transition conditions. Near the end of the video the strong winds and snow drift, resulted in low visibility. It felt like the temperature dropped three degrees within 1 hour and 12 minutes and then the snow subsided.
**Weather Questions*** Based on the video and data provided, and the actual weather stats that you gathered from the time frame suggested on yesterday (3/2/13), can you hypothesis and educate on what was really happening here?
For example: What kind of things can you conclude about the snowfall i.e.,
• How would you categorize these snow weather phenomena?
• What kind of snow clouds passed by?
• What was the actual change in the snowfall's velocity?
• What was the wind-chill factor?
• Wind speed?
• Change in temperature?
• Change in snowflake size or composition?
• What did I miss?
Sandy Springs, Georgia, Snow video taken between on 3/2/13, Saturday, somewhere between 2:57pm and 4:10pm. To be honest this time is derived from how long it took the second pizza to be delivered after the pizza delivery manager called to say "sorry your pizza is free... and we have to make a 2nd pizza and have it re-delivered for you within the hour. The first pizza got stuck in the 1st deliveryman's car that broke down. The pizza delivery mgr. called at 2:56 pm, per my cell phone's log. I stopped filming at approx. 4:10pm. I know I went outside after the pizza delivery mgr. called but I am not sure of the exact time.
I have more raw clearer footage available if needed or if you would just like more snow footage, just contact me at: email@example.com, titled "Need more snow footage 3/2/13"
Be sure to notice clues in the video like, when we changed clothes three times because of wind-chill and verbal clues like, "it's coming down now," "it's getting heavy again," and "Winter Wonderland" We actually got more clothes to wear after the blizzard effect, then the snow was over.
Camera: Fujifilm Finepix S 24X 14 mega pixels
