Dear Stupid NS-- 35 degrees isn't cold to start snowmaking because the freezing point of water is 32 degrees. durp dee durp

Quote from an article on Snowmaking in HowStuffWorks:
"If the temperature is around 30 F (-1 C), you need a fairly low relative humidity (less than 30 percent) for good snow-making conditions. If the temperature is less than 20 F (-6.7 C), you can make snow fairly easily even if the relative humidity is 100 percent. A temperature in the teens is ideal for snow-making."
"Knowing what you're doing" has nothing to do with snowmaking. The average humidity in Summit County is 30% year round, thus snowmaking conditions do not exist until the temperature gets below 30 degrees. It is has not been, nor will be below 30 degrees for a long enough period of time in Summity County to start snowmaking until the beginning of October.
