I presume these intrepid scientists never thought of holding the snow (or fake snow) in their hand until it melted (or didn't melt) and see if there is any residue afterward.
As the quoted post about density said, well, density.
Well this is strange....i hope anyone who has some snow...i dont....but whoever tries this should give a rough location and result...maybe we can pin it down for locale....

I've only seen a couple other videos of this that were private facebook vids...it could be an internet hoax who knows, my snow didn't do this and I'm 50/50 with people I know trying where they live. One friend in PA said her snow was fine...
Nice thing is its easy for people to test and corroborate or not...which is what hopefully ends up happening here...enough people test it out and see whats up.
I don't know why people would hoax this though...think about it would be a pretty difficult hoax too...what material would look like snow but burn like a weird plastic?edit on 30-1-2014 by Sly1one because: (no reason given)

Yep - that's the video -
The north african said it was "common" where he's from -
The "snow-rolls" - just like the "polar vortex" - are seemingly strange -as the MSM reports -
I've grown up in the midwest and, unfortunately, know snow and bad weather well, as I'm 50 years old - never seen "snow-rolls" -
I haven't tried to light the snow here in wisconsin up - maybe I will tomorrow, just to see.
Now you have.
