By
Industry Observer

This ones for you my friends & members from Activerain that are still fighting those Winter Blues, and just waiting for the snow to go away. This post is what some people would call a "Mirage" and what better place to capture a Mirage then the desert.

Hang in there everyone and the snow & storms will be gone before you know it, just a thing of the past!

98 degrees? Say it isn't so. I took a picture yesterday for wordless Wednesday of my weeping cherry tree covered in fresh snow. Altogether, we got about 3 inches but happily it is melting rapidly:)

VB - It seems that the snow is never going to disappear in those northern regions.

And Michelle that what I have been hearing and next year will be worse because many planets in our galaxy will be lining up with in turn will create bad weather all over the world ... ;o(

Bob, Great Video!  I thoughta that white stuff was salt from the outset!  It is really unusual to have it snow in Death Valley I have heard.  Have a great day!

Hello Tony & Darcy and it is salt, it was 98 degrees and I really don't think it could snow with these hot temps!

VB - you tricked me - I really thought this was snow. That is a lot of salt. Is any life present on this vast stretch of salt? Great video! Have a good night.

VB,

You sure fooled me! I thought it was snow from the beginning and I never would have guessed it be salt. I was quite surprised when you revealed the truth! Do you know if that type of salt is the same salt that melts the snow?
