Snow in Mobile

Snow in Mobile

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Alabama - Chad Kinney may the envy of his neighborhood, raking snow in his front yard this morning.  "It's just fun to do.  It's great for the kids", said Kinney.

Kinney makes his own snow machines, basically using an air compressor, a water hose, and a nozzle that fans the water.  When the cold air kids, the water turns into snow, quality snow according to WKRG intern Rob Dick from Massachusetts who enjoyed throwing snowballs.  "You kind of judge a snowball based on whether or not it's gonna hurt if it's gonna hit somebody.  That's doing some damage.  You can really compact them", said Dick.


 Mother nature delivering the white stuff to the gulf coast is a rarity, so Kinney enjoys giving her a little push when freezing temperatures arrive.  "The times that we do get it..that's when you need to take advantage of it.  When it's cold..just get out there and make some snow..it's fun", said Kinney.
