Some of my best friends are FLAKES!


Hee, hee… I always liked that quote!  It’s a popular sentiment for snowman greeting cards!

Week #2 and I’m highlighting **snowflakes** as this week’s LIFE’S simple pleasures.  I’m not planning out my weeks and what to write about… I’m letting LIFE just happen!

But you would think that in the second week of January … in the mid-west… during winter…. we’d be having a chance of… SNOW!

It’s 40 degrees out as I type this.  Average temperature for this time of year is 22.  We haven’t had more than 1″ of snow in over 319 days.  Like I wrote last year at this time, this is all very odd…. it’s gotta mean we are gonna ‘have to have a blizzard’….. it’s only a matter of when?

One single snowflake can be a simple pleasure!  The symbol of a snowflake often represents winter, cold or cold conditions.  We all can identify that simple diagram… even an asterisk looks like a snowflake *.  Defined: a snowflake is a conglomeration of frozen ice crystals nearly different in structure, they appear white due to their ability to diffuse reflections.

A few bits of trivia to marvel your friends: the largest snowflake on record was 15″ in diameter and fell in Fort Keogh, Montana on January 28, 1887.  10″ of snow will melt into 1″ of water due to the air particles trapped inside.  The snowiest city is Valdez, Alaska with an annual snowfall of 326.3″ per year, they received the most snow on January 16, 1990 at 47.5″.

A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realize how blessed you are.

Brighten Someone’s Day!! – Peggy
