~Snowflakes always have 6 sides
~There's six main categories: plate (flat), column, stars, dendrite (lacy), needle, and capped column
~When temperatures are extremely cold the snow will be very fine and powdery. The flakes are very simple, typically needle or rod shaped.
~ When the temperatures are closer to freezing point, the flakes are larger and much more complex.
~ The world's tallest snowman measured 113.6 feet (34.63 meters).
|dendrite flake. Possibly the most iconic and beautiful shape|
|plate flake. Easily in a tie with the dendrite for prettiest, for me at least|
|capped column flake. Award for most bizarre/type that I didn't know existed|
