Got a little breezy


The day before yesterday it didn't look bad in town so I headed out on the highway. The wind picked up and visibility deteriorated. There was a semi parked on the side of the road so I stopped to get out of the wind for a minute and snapped this picture. I really like winter riding, but I gave it up at this point and headed home. Not worth the risk.

It was actually a bright, sunny day. This snow fog was only about 30 feet deep and the rainbow effect was within it. A 12-15 mph wind was picking up a lot of fine, dry snow crystals that acted like a fine mist to create a rainbow effect. The photo came out very gray, but it would have been pretty, very white and sparkley, if you didn't have to worry about becoming a hood ornament.
