Let it snow!

After watching the weather and seeing that huge portions of the nation were getting winter weather of some sort, I admit I was a bit disappointed to have NOTHING happening here! But snow has started to fall... huge flakes, each flake containing many crystals clumped together. The snow crystals are beautiful. I would classify them as fernlike dendrites or possibly stellar dendrites. Definitely one of the classic, 6-pointed snow crystal designs. They are floating down like a holiday card.

We are only supposed to get an inch or so of snow -- hardly enough to create a clean slate for animal tracks. Still, it's magical out for a while, anyhow.

Here are pictures of the snow falling and a close-up of a snowflake on my sleeve (not an easy photo to take, but you get the general idea...)
