Search for a better snowflake
A cold-hearted dream of a better snowflake.
Something in the stars’ sporting
Or is the Love-me-Love-me-not petal prediction more fine?
To chill one up mimicking the wiles of the wilds without artistry guiding, substituting instead human meddling…
A bit of tweaking might create a wonder:
Snow crystals that don’t absorb or wear any dirt. Always mountain portrait perfect and sugar pretty covering the ground.
Flurries only on schedule. White Christmas guaranteed. Predictable ski conditions.
Drifts dissolving with consideration in measured time. No icy drip turning two massive floods.
Like manipulating DNA and GMOs
Like in vitro and early genetic redo for broken DNA.
Like producing better animals and crops
Whether the weather?
Tweaking nature acceptable for humans and plants, so surely sculpturing snowflakes not too chilling.
Could be cool.
Except, one clumsy chiseling, welcome ice age.

- Of crystal constructions:
““[A snowflake’s] final shape is a history lesson of how the thing grew,” Hallett said. “The outside edge of the crystal is where it grew last, and as you go inward you can tell [the conditions of] where it was before.” Read more here: PBS Newshour. “The science of snowflakes”

As well as an end the overload of delicate snowflakes?
Molly Malamute is warning her cousins and clan to stay out of Colorado.
The city of Aurora profiles unfairly
Wed. afternoon the family was in court: “10-year-old Capone can’t return home for at least a week.” (Denver news) Still waiting DNA tests. Animal Control “classified him as part wolf based on his behavior and appearance.”).Odd, aren’t most dogs? Interesting enough, in most places in Colorado, as long as a dog is at least 1% domesticated, it’s legal.
Huffington Post. VIDEO. “City seizes family dog (Black German Shepherd) alleging he may be part wolf” (He jumped the fence. They will not give him back and plan on either taking him to a wolf sanctuary or euthanizing him. What? For ten years he’s been cuddling with the family and sleeping with the kids….)
Tracy Abbato, Capone’s owner has opened a “Get Capone Home” GoFundMe Page for attorney fees, fines for having an exotic animal, and to build a taller fence.
And just for fun, here’s the Aurora Colorado City Hall’s Facebook Page. Please be nice but firm. Great PR, Aurora.
Until this is settled, Molly Malamute, whose ancestors were the now extinct Eastern European wolves that wandered across the ice bridge into Alaska (not the North American wolf species), is barking up a storm to prevent others from being snagged. Marking the state off vacation plans.
Capone dares to hope.
Please forward/post his plea anyplace you can.
