I bet you would love to read the technical and scientific causes of snowflake formations. Till then, read the snowflake poems aloud to your kids and enjoy them on a cold winter evening lying next to your fireplace settled with a cup of hot coffee.

He did all this in parallel to running his farm; he was a farmer cum scientist, his personality was an amazing combination of love for nature and science. Gifted and talented that he was, his passion for snowflakes gave the world an opportunity to understand this marvelous creation from a simple water droplet. While capturing the images he noticed that these amazing crystals have six sides and some of them had three, he also noticed that no two snowflakes are unique and alike. 

Are Two Snowflakes Alike?

 

However, in rare precedents, the researchers have succeeded to find 2 identical snowflakes. In reality, it is most difficult to find two patterns of snowflakes that are exactly identical. Had Bentley been alive, he would have certainly wondered about the great similarity of these snowflakes, he in his life time could not find any two snowflakes that were identical or an exact replica.

@ologsinquito - I live in a country where you hardly see snow except for those who live near Himalayas. I would love to watch snow from my window but it doesn't snow in Bangalore. I understand it could be frustrating if you have to tackle it everyday. :)

The first snowflakes of a season are really beautiful, as long as you have nothing to do and nowhere to go. Then we get tired of the snow. :)
