It makes me think the atmosphere where this occurred was cold enough to cause crystalization of the percipitation - e.g., "snow", on June 13th @ 7000 feet elevation, which is usually a little late in the season to see snow at that elevation.

It was a fascinating occurrence for... JUNE.

Let me guess, you think this means the earth is over heating.
