How does snow form?

No snowflake is precisely the same as the other. Yet, they all fall into one of 35 different shapes, according to researchers. But how exactly do they form? ❄️

Stars, plates, columns…

Snowflakes can take many shapes. They’re formed in high-altitude clouds if their temperature is below zero and if the atmosphere contains water vapor and dust particles. The water vapor condenses around them until it forms hexagonal ice crystals. Their tips grow depending on temperature and humidity. Once the snowflake measures a few millimeters, its weight makes it fall: it’s snowing.

    OK so you say no two snowflakes are the same. Prove it. 😁

    Nature forms them not people

    Check out the Japanese Dr Emotos experiment with tap water. Tap water has no structure but when given intention it changes its form. Feelings of Gratitude Joy love and music played like Mozart (high frequencies) make tap water look like snowflakes. Hate and other lower frequencies make it look very different. Snowflakes fall from high above where no negative energy exists that’s why the water takes on a beautiful structure. Which then makes you realise if you can change the structure of water with intention what are people doing to their own bodies which are mostly made up of water?

    I wonder why they’re different?
