CDOT brought out the big howitzer and did a Professor Shoot Friday morning. Some of you might have been either caught in the road closure or sequestered in the A-Frame while this was going on. Those shoots take a while. There is a lot of hurry up and wait, but this one was quite effective. The objective is to make the path to slide when no is on it or under it. Another objective is have lots of little slides instead of one monstrous one. Compared to the size of the slide path, this wasn't a particularly big avalanche. That said, if you were standing right next to it, it would look quite large.
