Wilson Alwyn Bentley, a teenage citizen scientist from my Vermont hometown, captured the first photomicrograph of a snowflake in 1885. Over his life, he photographed 5,381 snow crystals and declared, "...no one design was ever repeated." May these crystals, inspired by his photography, let you carry a piece of whimsy, wonder, and world-transforming-power so that any day can have a little more snow day magic.
