If snow melts down to water, does it still remember being snow? - Jennifer McMahon Mother Nature never ceases to amaze me.  Regardless of the season, she goes about creating the most spectacular masterpieces from the simplest of ingredients.  Take for example water.  In the past 48 hours I've watched as she's turned this one...
