    Why are we more interested in the intensity and duration of a rainfall event than snowfall event?

    Is it because there is more water when rainfall falls than snowfall?

    I suppose if the snowfall event were in Lagos or Rio de Janerio we should be most interested in it.

    i would be more interested in the FACT that it had snowed in Rio de Janeiro rather than the exact details of its intensity or duration - unless the quantities were excessively small or large
