Default Steam Engine Making Snow -30F

Converted my TTB pump into a snow maker. Interesting to note that it's 130 difference from where the TTB USD engine and pump were made to my driveway.

Temp was -30 (-50 wind chill)

Quite a long video, but has some neat slow motion, you can even see snow/ice coming out of the cylinder at some parts.

As usual, watch in HD and please subscribe if you haven't 😉

ENJOY!

With a little food coloring mixed in you could have made some multi-colored snow.

Thought of that afterwards, but I was too lazy to go through all the work of setting up again

I did use this pump with some food coloring to dye easter eggs last year
