No Two Snowflakes Are Alike

Everybody says these things, but who knows if it's true? I mean, have you actually examined snowflakes to see? And how could you ever know -- nobody could examine all the snowflakes in the world. Actually, it turns out that some physicists at CalTech do, in fact know. Statistically speaking, it seems to be true: no two snowflakes are likely to be exactly alike. Visit the link in the title for a nice change of pace and read why.

I'm just living vicariously here -- Boston is preternaturally mild all this November. When we should be having bluster, snow and sleet, it's been soft blue skies and sun or mist. Makes all good New Englanders fear the winter that's surely coming!
