Is it that uncountable amounts of snowflakes fall from the sky and yet each one is different? Or so the scientists would have us believe.

I would imagine it more than possible that there have been two, or more, snowflakes exactly the same. I think the chances of seeing this is pretty slim but that does not make it impossible.
