Ok I know it's July and we are all thinking summer,but in 5 months its going tobe winter AGAIN.
Anyway here is a recipe for snow that I aquired from an Amish cookbook.Thats wright I said Amish.After all I do live in the heart of the Pennsylvania Dutch country.
So here go's
Liquid Snow..........
1/4 cup of water
1/4 cup of bluing,
ask your wife what bluing is she will know..
1/4 cup of ammonia.

Mix and pour over wet rock formations and scenery.
1/4 cup of table salt

sprinkle evenly over mixture.

Then I have another one for snow.
this recipe is called Christmas Snow.

1 1/4 cups of agricultural lime
1 1/4 cups table salt
1/4 cup of blueing
add enough water to this mixture until it makes a thick gravey type liquid.
pour over desired scenery area.This stuff is supposed to grow overnight.

Out of the 2 I'm going to try #2 Christmas snow.

Just thought I would pop this up and see if anybody else is dareing enough to try any of these,If you do,I would like to know what you thought.
Thanks for the time.
