20051206 - real live snowflake

Ya hear all about it when you’re growing up . . . snowflakes aren’t just white specks, but actual six-sided flakes, no two of which are identical.

I accepted it as truth, of course, but it just became so much more real when I leaned in closely to a blanket of freshly-fallen snow on my car roof and saw, with my own eyeballs . . . this.

Ain’t it a purdy little thing?
