I am 47 years old and have lived the better part of my life in upstate New York, so I have experienced countless snow flurries and storms. Despite this, and while I have seen the decorative and design versions of snowflakes, I have never actually seen a snow flake that resembled anything like scissored patterns or artistic representations, until this morning. When driving to work and, stopped at a traffic light, I noticed this on my windshield:

Gotta say, I geeked out a little. This is the first, actual, individual snowflake I have ever seen.

It’s kinda beautiful, don’t you think?

Nature rocks.

  1. Quite beautiful. I’ve actually seen an individual snowflake, believe it or not, having lived in The South™ all my life. It snows in the Carolinas and Georgia occasionally, and once upon a time many years ago I caught a small individual flake on my glove. It was cool beans! Yours looks larger than the one I saw.


  2. It really is amazing. Looks like you just ‘happened’ to be looking through a microscope at the time. Lucky that you captured it on film otherwise no one would have believed you.


  3. Well I’m a few years older than you and finally decided to plunge myself into a move out of the frigid northeast and to slightly warmer climate of the Atlanta metro area. I like it here – up for a job in Atlanta itself and you can get a $200K house for as little as $1,200 a month.
