Even thought it’s something we see each year, still the first snow of the year never fails to satisfy people. We are use to having snowball fights, or building snowmen out of it. But sometimes we just like to sit back inside and enjoy the gorgeous view from our windows.
Here’s a list of some super satisfying images of snow that will soothe your soul more then you have ever thought.

Some fun facts; not two snow crystals are alike. The scientific consensus states that the likelihood of two snow crystals being the same is zero. The probability that two snow crystals or flakes will be exactly alike in molecular structure and in appearance is very, very minute.

Each winter about 1 septillion (1, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000 or a trillion) snow crystals drop from the sky. To go through all of them would be quite an exhausting task. So, people rely on cloud physicists, crystallographers, and meteorologists to explain why there are no two snow crystals alike.
The shape of crystals also varies from the atmospheric conditions. Snow crystals are sensitive to temperature and will change in shape and design as they fall to the ground. To have two snow crystals or flakes that went through exactly the same history of development is virtually impossible.
