Smile #107 – Snowmaster

Table Topic Master here, reporting for my duties!

This week, I branched out to a different role at Toastmasters!  Who knew being the Table Topic Master is so much fun!  I had fun brainstorming ideas!  🙂

Thanks to the impromptu snowstorm this past weekend, today’s topic will be all about snow!  I decided to research a bit about snow facts.  Here is what I learned:

  • The world’s largest snowflake was reported to be 15 inches across and 8 inches thick at Fort Keogh, Montana 129 years ago on Jan 28, 1887!
  • Over 76 inches of snow fell within 24 hour period in Silver Lake, Colorado.  New York’s 26 inches is nothing!
  • Residents of Bethel, Maine, USA built the world’s largest snow woman in 2008!  She stands at 122 ft in tall.  What a record!

Between my fun facts, I also prepared some questions.

  • If you can choose, would you rather stay in Charlotte during Storm Jonas’ visit or hide away elsewhere?
  • Describe your favorite childhood winter activity.
  • Despite snow is magical, tell us a time when snow was nothing but a nuisance.

The responses were great!  I learned quite a few things about our fellow toastmasters.  🙂  … FYI- Don’t stick you tongue out to see if it will stick to a frozen flagpole, the answer is yes, it will.

First time exceeding expectation on all criterias!  🙂
