Let It Snow Let It Snow Let It Snow

Do you know what these pictures are?

When I first saw them I thought a plastic toy or parts of a machine were smashed and I'm looking at the pieces.

Nope, they're snowflakes!

It's December 1st. It's 70 degrees. BUT, snow will be here soon.

And that is what snow looks like under an electron microscope.

i used to make paper snowflakes like that when i was a kid. ok, the didn't look exactly like that.

my microscope was the only toy i didn't box up for the attic when i decided that toys are for babies. oh, and barbie beauty makeup head. i needed her a little longer.

You had a microscope as a kid? What a loser!
