4 Gazillion Massive Snowflakes

Doesn’t the title of this post sound thrilling? Sorry, but the actual post isn’t nearly as thrilling as the title. No matter, the important thing here is that it’s snowing in Eagle Mountain, Utah. The snowflakes are huge.

A single "snowflake" on my camera case

Yes, of course I know that that snowflake is really hundreds of snowflakes clumped together. That’s not the point. The point is that it’s huge! That’s my camera case, by the way.

I love snow. Driving in it isn’t always fun, but it sure is pretty.


  1. justin dude. there were not 4 gazillion snowflakes. according to wiki, that’s not even a number: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gazillion
  2. Ryan haha! The description of the word fits pretty well though with my intention.
