    Heavy snowfall in the Sierras last night and today

    Hea-veee!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.

    I'll accept the bet and raise you Mt. Rainier NP Webcams, and we have people who actually get there. Of course, the road and parking lot is plowed.

    I sorta got to the Sierras (spent the day printing negs from a storm last
    fall). But snow is important because it produces water; and mosquitos
    need water to multiply.

    Thw Sierra snowpack also produces raisins, which the world needs for raisin bran cereal which is neccesary in the fight against constipation, which in turn contributes to world peace which in turn leads to more time to make Art, which translates into more sheet film being exposed which will keep the film companies in business. A by product of intestinal regularity & world peace is lower taxes which has the added benefit of producing more disposable income so photographers will be able to afford $80 for ten sheets of TMY. :lol:

    Snow also keeps me at home so that I can read John's anecdotes here on the Large Format Photography Forum.

    Sierra snow also leads to the production of prunes, which also aid in the fight against constipation. They are the choice of geriatric LF photographers the world over.

    Oh, and Drew, snow does not 'produce' water. It is water.

    (Currently, I have about 2 inches of white stuff here in Columbia (2,200 ft). It must be dumping in the mountains! Yay!)

    Wish I could have seen that snow in the hill country, Preston, but probably won't drive that direction until next weekend or so. Should jump start quite a few wildflowers during April. I'm still trying to guesstimate when the annual blood drive will occur in the high country, so I can schedule my official pre-mosquito and post-mosquitos backpacks. Looks
    like mid-August should be tolerable in most places. It's hot dusty horse trails I least enjoy
    in August, but afternoon thunderstorms often settle things down a bit. Oh well, sure beats
    being here in the office, regardless.
