Full Snow Moon, snowflakes, nose for weather

This is an archived issue of our Almanac.com Companion email newsletter.

Daily Newsletter for Tuesday, February 7, 2017

Dear Almanac readers,

Do you have a nose for weather? Learn why some of us can smell storms a' coming. Can two snow flakes be alike? Discover the many shapes of these crystal wonders. As the zen proverb goes,  "No snowflake ever falls in the wrong place."

Sincerely,
Your Almanac Editors

It is pleasant to think, just under the snow,
That stretches so bleak and blank and cold,
Are beauty and warmth that we cannot know,
Green fields and leaves and blossoms of gold
.
–Fay Hempstead (1847–1934)
