Is it true no two snowflakes are the same

For area snow lovers there are only been a few flakes so far and still not a sign of our first big snow.  Sorry no sign either of a "White Christmas" this year but we will be into some pretty cold weather before the week is over.  Here's a confession-myself along with most meteorologists love snow.  There's nothing like going our after a nice dry snow of a few inches and seeing the diamond sintillations in the light of perfect snow flakes and hearing that "crunch" of the cracking snowflake crystals as you walk along.  Even wondered how snowflakes form?  Here is a great video from the American Chemical Society explaining how these beautiful creations of nature form. Is it really true no two are the same?  Well watch this short video and make sure to enjoy our first snow.  It will come : >)
