Yeah, I always suspected there were identical snowflakes. Seen one in the great snow of '08, looked suspiciously like a snow flake I'd seen back in '74!

The next time I'm accused of being a snowflake, I shall take it as a massive compliment!

A lot of this was new to me, especially that there are actually different types. It was 118 here today. We could use some snow.

My favorite snowflakes are on a ski run after they have all collected together. Skiing is the greatest sport!

Brrrr! Still not far enough from winter! It snow here, in the Chicago area, in May. Run this again in mid-July.

Snowflakes are best seen when they land on your jacket sleeve, and for just a moment, rest in perfection with a lustre.
