Projecting the Lorax on a blizzard

As readers of Pirate Cinema will know, I love pointing powerful projectors at distant, public objects, because there's something awesome about watching YouTube videos against the side of an office-building opposite one's 15th-storey hotel room. But I never suspected how wondrous the results would be if I shone the movie-light into a blizzard, as Redditor bmaffitt did three days ago.

I pointed a video projector into the blizzard tonight, and took pictures. The results were... unexpected. (imgur.com) [Reddit]
