Why Did God Make Snow?

We had a bunch of snow last night here in Kentucky and it made me wonder, "Why did God make snow?"  I think two reasons can be seen from Scripture:

  1. To show God's power in creation (Job 37:1-6, 38:22)
  2. To show God's mercy in salvation (Ps. 51:7, Isa. 1:18

I'll add a third--not from Scripture, but personal experience.  My good friend, Lisle and I got into a little car accident today.  Everybody's fine.  It was the other guy's fault!  The interesting thing is that the snow actually might have kept his car from flipping over on its side and obviously causing a lot more problems.
