With all the junk in the air that it picks up on the way down, I might as well take a teaspoon of toxic waste and taste it. But when I was a kid, yeah, I tasted it.

Have to agree with Multi here; grew up in Montana and we knew back then snow had bacteria; what is the news here? BTW, what doesn't have bacteria in the natural world?

No way! Anything falling from the sky is picking up impurities as it falls.

When I was growing up, Mom always said you don't eat the first snow. Any snow after that was fair game, and I still like the occasional bowl of snow cream.

You bet! Every time it snows I head out for a couple of photos of myself in the deadly white powder. Why photos? Because I want the family to have a picture of my happy self taken before I die from eating some of the wonderful stuff. I dare to live life on the edge.

Nope. Rain and snow and any precipitation (including hail) forms by water condensing around particulates in the air. This can be anything from dust to smoke to pollen. I don't taste snow because I know that all of those snowflakes formed around some sort of particulate, which is still in the snowflake.

Snow is beautiful! When it snows, I'm out there looking up into the sky and having it fall on me.

Do you wash your hands often during the day? If not, you are putting more toxins into your mouth that snow will ever contain.
