very useful and nice plugin but even after disabling it on mobile screen it still works on phone, any workaround or update please? that is critical for me. And maybe a random image out of a number of images like 5 or 10 and adding some movement file falling would be awesome on top of this brilliant work.

Works well. It would be nice to have the option to snow only on the main home page, disabling it for all other pages.

Very good plugin to show snowflakes on your screen. You can even change the picture by another one, like dead leaves picture for automn ! Perhaps, one day, the dead leaves will "turn"... 🙂 ! Please find the same concept for each seasons 🙂 ! Thank you for this first one 🙂 !

Working great for me and was able to upload my own image to use for Valentines Day. Add a timeout ability (ie- snow stops after 60 seconds to not annoy your visitors) in addition to the scheduling, and you have the perfect plugin.

At the default 25 flakes, my core i7 is running at 25% CPU in Firefox. (ie 100% of one core). This is due to poorly JS code which makes performance terrible. Please update your JS code to be more lightweight and you will be the first snowfall plugin that doesn't impact site performance.
