Anything Can Happen: Winter?

Here in southern Maine this has been the year that winter overlooked.  Personally, I have relished the ability to walk without fear of falling on ice and snow, and the sweep snow dustings rather than hours of shoveling. [I have only had to shovel three times all winter!!]

 But.... to remind us of the other side:

According to the Guiness World Records  the largest snowflake recorded was

in  Fort Keough, Montana, in 1887

It measured 15 inches wide  by  8 inches thick ! !

At that size instead of shoveling you could pick them up and carrying them them a couple at a time!
