I was driving along a state highway today, and saw the space between the hills in the distance billowing with white.
What was going on? First, I thought my eyes were tricking me, but there was definitely something going on up ahead.
Have you figured it out yet? OK, just a little closer should help.
Yup, Crystal Mountain has begun making snow for the ski season. They can't turn on the machines until the weather stays below freezing. I can tell you that it was definitely cold enough today.
Here's one they must have turned on very recently. You can see that there is even green grass in the lower right, but the snow is starting to build up in front of the blower.
You get one more just because I like the way this one looks- a little art mixed with the game.
The joke is on me. I even know the ski area is on that road, but it took me longer than you might think to figure out what I was seeing. I do think it's weird to have a snowy hill in the middle of the not-yet-snow-covered landscape.
