I just stopped by my kitchen sink to get a glass of water. Staring out the window as i drank it I see these funny little flakes coming down from the sky. I went to the front of the house to see the bigger picture and yes in deed, the snow is falling and starting to stick to the ground. If we get a lot of snow I'll take a photo later and let you see how much we get... Since I got my first good camera I have been fascinated with snow flakes. They are so beautiful when you see the bigger picture. So delicate, so perfect, so beautiful. The photo above was not taken today, When it starts to snow hard I will put on my ski jacket and let them land on my arm and take pictures. That is where this photo came from a few years ago. Have you ever seen one up close? Aren't they beautiful?

Fifteen years ago when I first moved to Gainesville, Florida from south Florida (in February), we had a super-cold winter. I was driving home from work one afternoon when what I thought was ash started landing on my windshield. But when I stopped at a traffic light, I looked closer and realized they were snowflakes. Of course, this was back in the day before cell phones had cameras on them, so I didn't get a picture. And nobody believed me when I got home and told everyone that snowflakes fell out of the sky! But I was 100% sure that's what they were because they looked just like the ones in your photo!

I would need a magnifying glass now to see a snowflake in all its glory. My eyes aren't what they use to be. When I was young I was fascinated with snowflakes and spent a lot of time outdoors catching them as they fell from the sky.

@PainsOnSlate If I had a camera that had that feature I would snap quite a few pics so I could display them during the winter months. Not like you need a reminder that it is winter, but snowflakes are so lovely.

This is the craziest year. we have had a total of maybe an inch of snow, maybe two. And it lasted a few days and then melted. I pick up the paper off the driveway usually every morning...I am usually up first up. And I take a shover in fromt if there is snow and I've only done that twice this year...February might get us good this year..or not.

Thank You. It was a cannon cost me around $80 about 8 years ago. Point and Shoot. but with a lot of settings, the micro setting is good for details and small things... I loved it but it is dying. My son is doing the research to find me another that works like that one did. Mine still works but its not as clear as before and my newer photos are a disappointment.
