    Copy and paste this script.
    I use it and it doesn't require any images.

    <SCRIPT type="text/javascript">

    // NOTE: Lots of large, fast moving snowflakes will use a lot of system resources.

    // Set the number of snowflakes (more than 30 - 40 not recommended)
    var snowmax=30

    // Set the color of the snow.
    var snowcolor=new Array("white")

    // Set the font that creates the snowflakes.
    var snowtype=new Array("Arial")

    // Set the character that creates your snowflake.
    var snowletter="*"

    // Set the speed of sinking (recommended values range from 0.3 to 2)
    var sinkspeed=.75

    // Set the maximum size of your snowflakes
    var snowmaxsize=30

    // Set the minimal size of your snowflakes
    var snowminsize=12

    // Set the snowing-zone
