Ephermeral Eons...

With all the snow, we've developed layers in our snowbanks like a geological cross-section from a road cut through rock. I've enjoyed the study of certain types of ephemera, and wondered if there is any point to being able to learn the layers of snow. "This fall was light and fluffy, but it was later compacted by the action of heavy wet snow and sleet on top of it."
