Want faster wind? slower fall speed? Color? all variables are customizable!
The default number of snowflakes is set at 60. If you want to add or remove snowflakes, make sure you change the variable "NumSnowflakes".
Have multiple monitors? Just change the variables TotalScreenAreaX and TotalScreenAreaY and you're good to go.
Just don't forget to change the variables StartX and EndX to indicate the area for your snowflakes to spawn.
Technical stuff: (The stuff you shouldn't worry about unless you want to edit variables)
If you want to change the update rate under [rainmeter], you MUST change the variable UpdateRate.
Also, due to the snowflake's random speeds, you have to adjust the Lifetime variable when you change fall speed or the snowflake amount. More information inside the .ini file.
High cpu usage? Set update and UpdateRate to 32 for a 30FPS animation, or lower the amount of snowflakes.
All of the snowflake's features:
ImageTints (colored snowflakes like in this gfy: gfycat.com/ScalyEnormousDorkin…
Swaying (quadratic InOut that sways particles side to side)
Wind (3 types!)

Hotfix 2.0.1: Fixed an inconvenience regarding the meter [MeterWorkArea], made it's W and H use variables that have already been set earlier in the file.
optional Sidefix (is that a thing?) for 2.0.1: If you have particles that spawn under the screen and then flow upward, replace SnowflakeAnimator.lua with this: pastebin.com/nxxEQg23
This doesn't remove particles that are located under the screen.
2.0.2: fixed something stupid I missed in [MeterWorkArea]
Hey, I found the issue. This skin uses a lot of CPU because of big size of snow image. Just change size of snow image, it imediately reduce lots of CPU using. Solve: You need to find skin folder (...\Skins\IcyStorm\@Resources\Images) and copy snowflakeRealistic.png then go to https://onlinepngtools.com/resize-png for resize down (recommend 8x8), then download it, replace the old one with name snowflakeRealistic.
