No dime for scale. For shame OP.
If only we could trust people enough on the internet to just take their word for it. I've been hurt too many times.
Still waiting for that safe to be opened?
So many safes... When I see unopened ones posted now I start having flashbacks.
Mandatory something something banana
Given the lack of other snow in this picture, and that the sun is out, OP must have taken this picture rather fast.
I'm skeptical. That thing wouldn't last long on an unfrozen ground. Looks too bright for a snow storm
And they aren't that size
Flagstaff resident here. This place is cold as shit. It’s definitely possible for a snowflake to last on the ground in this unforgiving tundra of pain.
It was around 19° in the morning
People are so gullible 🙄
Flagstaff is one of the snowiest cities in the US.
TIL. You don’t hear Arizona and think snow.
Yeah there are mountains kind of north in the state and the elevation is higher. We used to drive up to Flagstaff when I was a teenager to see the snow.
It did snow once where I lived (near Phoenix in the valley) when I was there but it was only like an inch and gone by that afternoon.
Well it's in the mountains at a high elevation, so I'd assume that's to be expected
If this had been from Snowflake, AZ it would be more perfect.
Yeahhh that’s felt
I’m sorry you felt that way but I have never felt the need to make a fake snowflake. While I am desperate to be loved I still have my integrity.
I’ve never actually seen a real snowflake before. I knew they existed outside of cartoons, but seeing a picture of one is actually kinda mind boggling for me.
Don't tell Freddie Four Fingers. He'll drop a dime on you.
Shout out to F-town!
YO I’M LITERALLY GOING BACK TO NAU LATER TODAY LET’S MEET UP
What an absolute fucking unit. Things could’ve killed someone
Snow, in AZ? I thought it was a myth
Phoenix doesn't really get snow. Now Northern AZ is a different story.
We got it once when I lived there (I was pretty close to Phoenix). It snowed like an inch and was gone that afternoon.
Flagstaff gets it every year without fail though.
Flagstaff is at like 7500ft lol
If you squint the background looks like a crowd of soldiers.
Hello from Kachina!
Why do I suddenly think bananas are important right now?
That thing could knock you out
I see it has retreated to it's safe space
did you step on it afterwards?
I should have made a video of me picking it up because everyone seems to thinks it’s a arts and craft project.
Is using random objects to measure things instead of actual units of length an American hobby? Is it so much more fun than saying "about 2 inches across" or whatever (never mind the whole inches vs cm situation as well)?
I've found a value to convert:
Not from the US, I kinda know the size of an average banana but have no idea how much 11 inches is.
but then they use American objects like dimes and shit as well lmao like their shitty measuring system isn't bad enough in the first place, at least if they say inches you can convert it easily into cm
Yeah the dime wouldn't be as precise as a banana. Still coins have only a small range of sizes. Don't get me wrong, it's become nothing more than a circle jerk where there's gotta be at least three comments asking "object" for scale. And maybe, I would've earned what an inch is by now if people actually used measurements.
The dime was just shy of 17.91 mm in diameter. Better?
I learned to ski in Snowbowl.
Yeah, no, that's not how snowflakes look (it looks like it's made of fluffy snow, snowflakes are solid ice crystals), and they don't grow this big. And it wouldn't keep its shape on the ground. This is felt.
The temp was 19° in the morning. I was just as skeptical as you when I saw it.
This some fake ass sheit
Yep. We get snow up north. We have the largest pine forest in the world. Look up Oak Creek Canyon Scenic Drive on google to give you an idea of the diversity of Arizona. It’s a large state with plenty of space in between.

Theres never been any other type of snowflake besides a "perfect" one.
Every snowflake that falls is a "perfect" snowflake. The way they develop makes them symmetrical. Billions of them fall every time it snows. This is an extremely common occurance.
