Ground Blizzard

Today when I went skiing the wind was SCREAMING.  But it was weird - the sky was clear and you could see - only it is was a total whiteout by your feet. I could see distant mountains, but not my feet!  This view of the summit ridge to Pyramid Mountain sort of captures it.  I wish I had taken a video.  The wind-driven snow lashing across my feet was sort of a surreal experience. That's what they call a ground blizzard!  Patrick
