Yes, I know: no two snowflakes are alike.
But it’s still been interesting to see and hear about the different types of snowflakes that have descended upon Wichita today.
The snow early this morning reminded me of mites dashing to the ground: tiny flakes in a real hurry. Every once in a while, there’d be some giant flakes that looked more like someone had torn up some tissue paper and was tossing the pieces down from atop a tree or tall building.
Around lunch time, the rate of snowfall had decreased, but the flakes were much larger and fluffier. If the snowfall had been heavier, it would have proved a boon for those who love to build snowmen.
Early this afternoon, someone I follow in Twitter described the weather as “SNOW BOMBS!”
Fortunately, today’s snow hasn’t been destructive, as streets and bridges have been kept clear. That may change as the snow continues overnight, but forecasters now say Wichita may only end up with another inch or less.
