Spooky (snowflake #5)

I94 ghostly snowfall

Like dry ice on stage at a concert, spooky snow sweeps over the road, swirling away from the approaching car tires. It lingers like smoke until approached when it speedily swirls away into the darkness.  Fascinating white flames in the dry cold briefly caught dancing in the headlights of cars.

Hard, dry and fast, it stings.

Fire’s nemesis.

This is my car after about 40 minutes exposure to stupid snow:

Antisocial (snowflake #2)

This type of snowflake has a personal space in excess of 3ft

It meanders down avoiding settling on stuff and disappears as soon as it hits a surface. The flakes may be more substantial than “Dandruff” flakes, but they don’t have presence. They evoke a sense of disappointment, “is this all we’re getting

They don’t settle, they cover anything

The anti-social snowflake is an anti-climax

Dandruff (snowflake #1)

Small, firm, frozen droplets, creating a light fog with a sticky texture. Settling on walls and trees, creating a cover that doesn’t crunch under-foot
