 Snowflakes are the true symbol of winter.  When I think of winter, I think of the majestic beauty that is snow.  It drapes the world in white blanket, that gives you a surprising warm and fuzzy feeling inside.  Snow is magical.   The weather conditions have to be just right for it to snow.

 

Snowflakes are frozen water vapor trapped in clouds, which then starts to crystallize. The snowflake size depends on how many crystals latch onto each other. Thanks to Fibonacci sequence,  in nature, snowflakes are made in a hexagonal-shape.

 

Contrary to popular belief, each snowflake is not a unique shape.  Researches for decades looked and examined snowflakes and finally found some that look identical.  And believe it or not, snowflakes are not white in color.  They are clear.  It is the light passing through and shattering against the crystal formation that gives it the white appearance.

 

The most snow to fall in a 24 hour period in the United States is 75.8 inches. Over six feet of snow fell between April 14,1921, and April 15,1921, in Silver Lake, Colorado.

 

Snowflakes are a symbol of purity, individualism, beauty, and grace.  The next time you curl up on your couch drinking hot cocoa and watching the snowflakes fall, just remember all the beauty nature provides us.  Enjoy nature’s own little works of art, they are special moments to remember.

Add a personalized snowflake charm to your next floral arrangement!
