Throwback Photos – Snow crystals

Christmas Day 2019!  Amazing snow crystals. It doesn't matter how much time we spend outside, we are still always in awe of the beauty of nature.  Never ending entertainment!  I'm sure we could lookup how these crystals form (surely something to do with humidity...
