Posted: 02/17/2016 - Frank sent me a picture on Facebook and asked, “I had this ice pattern on my windshield this morning. Any ideas? Looks like an angel painted it.”
Updated: 02/10/2016 - You've probably heard that no two snowflakes are the same, and Tonya wanted to know why they're different shapes.
Updated: 02/10/2016 - From camping to curiosity, you may want to be able to tell the time of day by looking at the sun.
