What's that white stuff?

Usually in February, there is no lack of snow to take photos of, if you live in Ada.  But this year, we are happy to find a snowflake to shoot with a camera. Ada Icon photographer Ken Collins came up with these pics. He writes, "The little bit of snow that we got Saturday began fluffy and became more granular. Photos are up close and personal with one of the latter flakes. It still has the six points even if it is smaller in area." That about sums up 2016-2017 winter in Ada, a winter many (but not all) liked. (Ken Collins photos)
