I used to do this every winter

There is a website I used to visit every winter. It is called "snow days" and you can "cut out" your own personal snow flake, add a message and launch it. I have not done it in a while, though. I just made a flake. I used my myLot name, GardenGerty and when it asked where I was from I said "myLot" . I am not sure how to search for a particular snow flake. There are over twelve million, but it says you can search for it. So I am including a link to the site. It is relaxing just to watch the snow flakes fall. Almost as good as an aquarium full of fish. I hope some of you will visit and make a flake.
Have fun. Make a flake. It's a snow day!

I do a discussion on this site every year. Did it back a while. October 17th. Good to be reminded and have it up again.
One of the nicest memories I have of time spent with my mom were the snowflakes. She was always so industrious and coming up with fun and interesting things to...

They improve as you do more. I am out of shape--ha ha. In the past it only had the polygon mode, I think. Did you say you were from MYLOT on yours?

I will go there for sure as I am a disgruntled soul not having experienced it in my real life. I have been to places where snowflakes is a natural phenomena but not when I have been around

@GardenGerty The best kind..I wish that is the only kind we'll see but they are saying more snow than normal for us this winter...I live in the south - we don't want snow.

I tried the search twice and got different results. The first time it brought up a snowflake stating that you like potatoes, but the send time it mentioned that you can always have snow here.

I have not tried searching. I think this is the first year I have said I am from MYLOT. I may have done some with my offline name as well. I think from now on they will be GardenGerty from myLot. I will have to see about the potato one.

@GardenGerty The potato one was the first that I saw, but every search since has resulted in the other snowflake being found. It seems that I may have foolishly done something wrong the first time, otherwise it would be traceable again.

I watched the video and enjoyed watching the snow but I didn't make a snowflake.

That's really cool! (No pun intended). I had to make a snowflake and I don't usually do things like that.

It's been a while, but I think I did make a flake a couple years ago. It was fun to read the various flakes.

Great idea however I am enjoying the milder fall weather right now and I don't want to see anything related to snow.

It sounds like a wonderful idea. I think that I should like to do this too. Thanks for sharing ..... there are so many exciting things around that are so easily missed if it were not for sites such as this and people posting about them .
