But I did snag a couple of pictures that I liked, which I'll share here:
Hoarfrost crystals (from http://www.its.caltech.edu/~atomic/snowcrystals/frost/frost.htm)
Hard rime on a tree (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_rime)
Soft rime (called soft because it is more fragile than hard rime) (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soft_rime)
Then there's this, which pretty much blew my mind:
Electron microscope image of Rime ice on both ends of a "capped column" snowflake (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_rime)
It looks like some kind of heavy duty metal machinery to me.
That's as far as I got into the realm of snow, and I may never go further, as I must now spend an undetermined amount of time recovering from researching ice and frost.
I think some elephant jokes might help my recovery. And they might amuse you, too.
Q. What does Tarzan say when he sees a herd of elephants in the distance?
A. "Look! A herd of elephants in the distance!"
Q. What does Tarzan say when he sees a herd of elephants with sunglasses?
A. Nothing. He doesn't recognize them.
Q. What does Tarzan say when he sees a herd of giraffes in the distance?
A. "Ha ha! You fooled me once with those disguises, but not this time!"
Q. What is the difference between an elephant and a plum?
A. An elephant is grey.
Q. What does Jane say when she sees a herd of elephants in the distance?
A. "Look! A herd of plums in the distance!" (Jane is colour-blind)
These jokes borrowed, with thanks, from http://homepage.eircom.net/~cronews/elep/elep.html

Hope you have a good weekend, people!
One final snow-related thought:
