The spectacular turnaround in conditions at the Gathering was indeed a last minute surprise."
Indeed, ullr is most effective when used to increase snowfall totals. It's been a little more difficult, but not unheard of, to make it snow out of thin air. But used properly, it can turn 2 inches into 2 feet.
Hey Doll glad you found this. Truth be told I was never comfortable with that ULLR Nazi thingy, sounds way more oppressive than it really was. I mean that first day of skiing frozen groomerz created a sense of desperation. I'm really glad that someone who knew what they were doing, shall we say an expert, stepped up to nudge us onto the right track.
I prefer to think of you as an ULLR Shaman, able to see past the immediate situation, prescribe a tasty solution and nurture your crew to a better place. Besides the breakfast toast, another thing I enjoyed is that after ULLR finished turning 1-3 inches into 5 feet, he gave us two bluebird days at the end to appreciate teh goodness. I think it's best to save the shot ski for giving thanks after the snow, begging for snow should be a more solemn ritual?
Oh and one more thing before I go,
You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.
