Snow popping in the sky

At the Bay Street Mall in Emeryville they were having a seasonal attraction: white foam was blown from the roof in tiny patches, looking entirely like snow in the light of the streetlamps. Until it landed on chairs, tables and customers clothing, when it looked like foam again. I'd like to think that the kids who were taken there now believe that snow is made from soap and falls from the roof of stores. But with all the TV they are watching, they of course are well aware that snow comes from Columbia and is bad for your septum.
