Weird Snow

Tonight we started to get some of the snow that has been troubling the rest of the country. Anyway it started snowing around 6:45pm, but very light and melted immediately. Eventually it started to stick. Round about 8:30pm Jan noticed this pattern of un-melted snow out of the kitchen window.
Is that weird or what? Does it look like a dog to you?
