Today's Google Doodle isn't to honor a notable person, or specific holiday, but the Internet giant has decided to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the largest snowflake ever recorded.
Sources say the snowflake, which landed in Montana on January, 28, 1887, measured 15 inches in diameter. One article states a rancher said snowflakes from the particular storm with the largest snowflake were "larger than milk pans." Wow! Now those are big snowflakes!
The Google Doodle shows a cow happily grazing away in a field, only to be startled moments later when a gigantic snowflake falls to the ground. It seems they are good at coming up with unique, and catchy animations to say the least. Who wants to build a snowman? No?
This isn't the first time Google has made it snow. Last month animators implemented "Let it Snow" in their search bar. When users searched for this term they'd have their own personal snowstorm. It looks like today's Google Doodle is keeping with the spirit of the Winter Season. At least everyone can make their own doodles on the frosted screen "Let it Snow" leaves behind. At least until they hit the "defrost" button.
