snowflakes

Need a Snow Day?

I was one of those kids who was addicted to wasting classroom time in December making paper snowflakes. Click on the above icon and you can do the same, with no paper clutter to clean up, and at the same time contribute to The Salvation Army's 2006 Holiday Flake-a-Thon.

The science of snowflakes here.

(For those of you who wonder where I come up with this stuff, I'd be nothing without Rudy.)

When I read "need a snow day?" I was hoping there would be some clever advice on how to drop out of life for a while. Instead I just really enjoyed your photos from the truffles post.

Ritadaphne/bisous: Et Joyeux Noel a toi!

Caroline: Moi aussi.

Joyce: Les inhabitants de Manitoba n'exigent pas les jous de neige, n'est-ce pas?

Ces: I know! I keep going back to make more.

Snowflake: but it's so much more fun to design your own!

Dinahmow: I guess you'll have to set up a raindrop-making website now...

Susan: Watch it -- you'll be paying for fillings next with all that sweet good cheer! Looking forward to your Happy New Year cards.

LDahl: Are you implying that my blog is fattening? :)

Thanks to my new Geographic I discovered that a snowflake's shape depends on the temperature at which it is formed.

From 0 to -5 flakes crystallize as plates and dendrites
-5 to -10 needles and hollow columns and past that they return to dendrites and plates...
this makes me sound pretty flakey doesn't it?
Andrea thanks for being such a great sport in 06 and have a great holiday.
This year you get to sing 'the weather outside is frightful'...
I hope that it stops soon.
