    Fast Facts: Jan. 24

    • The snowdrop is the flower for the month of January because it often blooms in the snow.
    • A person standing under an oak tree is 16 times more likely to be hit by lightning than if he had taken refuge beneath a beech tree because oak trees have vertical roots that shoot directly to ground water.
    • Water is lighter as a solid than a liquid — it floats. If ice could sink, seas, lakes and ponds would become frozen from the bottom up. This would push all aquatic life to the top, killing all life.
