I don't think we've had a decent fall of snow here since I took this way back in 2009.
I thought it was quite clever of the statue in our garden to equip herself with a hat, scarf and gloves to keep herself warm though.

Don Komarechka (also mentioned in the Smithsonian article) said on a podcast that he uses a drop of super glue (cyanoacrylate) to capture snowflakes and keep them from melting, and then he can photograph them indoors.
Bunch of articles on techniques:
https://www.google.com/search?q=preserve+snowflake+cyanoacrylate

So, back a few weeks ago in February when it was bitter cold and snowing i gave the superglue snowflake preservation a try. The images below are not great examples of photography (taken with an iPhone aimed at the eyepiece of a microscope) but are intended to document the success of the technique.

I’ll have to work on my skills at eliminating bubbles and broken/melting flakes but it’s still pretty cool, and the best snowflake photos I’ve ever taken when it’s 50F outside.

We lost power for most of the day into the evening, but we had provisions

Panasonic G9 Olympus 60mm macro.
Mild winter in NC this year. This is probably the last frost well see until the fall.
