The 1736 definition for Snow includes explanations of why snow is white and why the sharp points of snowflakes don’t hurt when they land on our skin.
Snow is a moist vapour, elevated near to the middle region of the air, whence it is thickened into a cloud and reduced into the form of carded wool, then falling down by little parcels. The white colour of snow proceeds from the conjunction of humidity with cold, which naturally engenders the whiteness. If snow falls in summer-time, it is caused by the high mountains, which, cooling the lower region, give bodies unto vapours, and cause them to descend as low as the earth.
