|"Your online guide to snowflakes, snow crystals, and other ice phenomena." Snow activities include instructions for using everday objects and dry ice to make your own snowflakes; for using glue to make plastic snowflake replicas ("snowflake fossils") and otherwise capture or preserve them; and for making ice spikes from distilled water. Also learn about frost, hoarfrost, surface hoar, frost flowers, rime, and the physics of snowflakes: crystal faceting, snowflake branching, electric growth, ice properties, myths and nonsense, and "No Two Alike?"
