Snow kidding

So it was kind of a strange moment I had  today on assignment.  Just outside of town near Mossdale I am trying to avoid slipping in the fresh snow as my camera gets pelted by a snow flurry.  Strange indeed.

The snow was being piped in to fill a snow hill for inner tube riders as one of the attractions at the Dell Osso Holiday on the Farm which opens on Friday.  The winter holiday themed attraction features the snow hill, Christmas lights and a new sight this year, an ice skating rink.

A refrigeration unit keeps a layer of ice frozen for a 120 foot by 60 foot rink for visitors wishing to show their skating skills.  Ice skates will be available for rent for people who don't have their own pair.  It is sure to be a different sight for drivers on I-5 as they catch a glimpse of skaters twirling about the rink under the lights at night.

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas indeed.
