是there was or there were呢?
這句應該是用there was 還是there were呢?
There was or were heavy snow falls, and as a result, all the trains were delayed.
Snow不是單數嗎?那麼應該是要用was 還是were呢? 感謝

但是當我們寫成 snow fall 或是 snowfall，這時已經不是 snow 的問題，不是「雪」，而是「下雪」。 下雪是可以有次數的。
There were heavy snow falls, and as a result, all the trains were delayed.
既然 snow falls 已經加了複數，當然動詞要用 were！
snow falls 或 snowfalls 稱為「複合名詞」，前面的 snow 已經帶有形容詞性，不影響單複數的判斷，複數形加在 falls。

There were heavy snow falls, as a result, all trains were delayed.
The answer to your question has been provided when you add "s" at the end of fall- it means that there were numerous snowfalls had happened that caused the local train stations to issue delay notifications of new trains' schedules.
A suggestion, please use snowfalls instead of snow falls.

Snow 非單數,也非雙數名詞, 是不可數名詞
使用上視同單數, 唯不用 a/an
需數量化時, 在前面加 much, any, a little, some, a lot of, # of
有一場雪. 有一點雪. 有很多雪. 有十公分的雪
There was snow/ a little snow/ some snow/ a lot of snow/ 10cm of snow.
但你的問題裡真正的名詞是 fall, snow從名詞轉形容詞
因 fall 可數
(單數) snow fall = snowfall
(雙數) snow falls = snowfalls
其實兩個字可以合起來 (rainfall, sunshine, honeycomb, babysitter, starlight)
snowfall = 降雪
這裡降雪頗嚴重, 下了很多次雪 There were heavy snowfalls.
降雨量超大也可以說 heavy rainfall
