While I scrolled through YouTube yesterday, I came across something magical. A documentary about snow revealed that when each individual snowflake touches water, falling into a puddle or lake, it immediately melts (that’s not the magic part). As it does so, it makes a sound inaudible to the human ear. Every snowflake’s note is distinct.

Can you imagine what it would sound like as you listen to falling snow in water if you could hear it? Maybe it’s musical and beautiful? I don’t know. Nor can I find the snow documentary again. Can anyone verify the idea, or was I in a dream?
