That's reminds me that where I grew up, you could literally roll the snow up leaving a path on the grass that had no snow on it at all. We could make snow rolls up to a maximum of about four feet in diameter.
I'm inclined to think the "wetness" is more a consequence of the conditions at, or close to, the ground, but then again, there are very different types of snowflakes.
I know that in Oregon, sometimes near freezing we can get some huge, floating snowflakes... Perhaps an inch in diameter. And it might not even be cold enough to stick.
I have found that snowflakeologists are self described flakes driven as if by an emotional winter storm of obsessive compulsive desire to record every possible ice crystal pattern that might be possible. Otherwise they are pretty laid back.
