When a word, such as 'S.N.O.W.', has many different meanings in many differing contexts, it's fun to take all of the meanings of that word and saturate one's mind with how they might connect.

One could define 'S.N.O.W.' with the many ways it's found in the dictionary.

For example describing it's physical form:
"The aqueous vapor of the atmosphere precipitated in a crystalline form, and falling to the earth in flakes, each flake consisting of a distinct crystal, or more commonly of combinations of separate crystals."

One could define the word as a form of measurement:
A measure of Color -
"A shade of the color white."

or of Time -
"A winter; hence, in enumeration, a year: as, five snows."

One could read into it's more contemporary usage:
"Electrical noise visible on a television screen resulting from weak reception."

Maybe one uses 'S.N.O.W.' as an abstracted idea or behavior:
"To conceal one's true motives with insincere talk, especially with flattery and by elaborately feigning good intentions so as to gain an end."

Or perhaps 'S.N.O.W.' simply stands for, STUFF NO ONE WANTS.
