She felt she was being picked on and specifically singled out. Her poiting of the snow down to the Caribbean (and onto the deck of the Spoiled Princess) was a temper-driven "snap back" at Winter.
Though given the way time has been played with on occasion by various individuals, there's no guarantee that cause would precede effect.

I do agree, however, that this is probably not somebody getting back at her for the cruise ship incident.

It could also easily be someone playing a practical joke on those two, i would not rule M out.

Personally, I think ALL the times she has been inundated with a sudden burst of snow is someone playing a prank on her and not a random act of nature. Probably one of the Golem Girls. Or maybe Tepoz. Just getting her back for all those times she was mean to him. There are a number of candidates. All in all, my money would be on Tepoz since he has been around her from the start and has reasons to prank her from time to time. Now it's a tradition so he can't just stop.

You know, I was going to say that I think that happened before she met Tepoz - but it actually happened right after she sent him to Utah...

He can still *poit*

He just can't create stuff without alcohol. He can transport stuff without issue. He's played "soccer mom" for Nudge before.

My first thought when I viewed the post was "Wait, Jin is pregnant-- or has she domino'd already???". And then realized I've been reading too much fan fiction!

Granted, this was early this AM, BC (before coffee).

Just being thick as a brick.

Right... I have to work to keep fanon separate from canon in my head. It actually takes conscious effort. :P

I don't drink coffee or cola, which is why the more generic caffeine, and mate' is arguably tea, or at least an infusion.

There are probably trace amounts of various kinds of alcohol in the atmosphere. Not much but some. How much does it take for Tepoz to work his magic on a substance containing it? One molecule? Does even a trace amount in one point in the atmosphere give him control over the whole atmospheric system since it's all connected? Who knows. More likely though, there would be some trace amount spread throughout the atmosphere. That tiny amount might even allow for some control over the weather by transmuting specific parts of it. A little effect here, a big effect at some other location? Create a vertical snow front right over s tiny island in the Bermuda Triangle? Getting it to dump all it's snow at once would be another matter. Though that could be a characteristic of a vertical front.

That being said, and as has been noted, it would most likely be his power to poit that did the trick.

Yeah. I know. I'm way over thinking this. But in the Wapsiverse, physics be damned so anything is possible.

So Tepoz poits in or creates some alcohol vapor, it goes into solution in the atmospheric moisture, and then he has control of same . . .

actually, alcohol *stops* ice forming.. it is used in many car de-icers.... :P

So If tepoz somehow got it in a big 'snow cloud' the result would be a big RAIN downpour! I prefer snow, it can be brushed of before it gets wet!!

But once he has alcohol in it, he has control, and can lower the temperature enough that it freezes anyway.

Even straight alcohol will freeze solid if it's cold enough . . . though amusingly, it freezes at a higher temperature than a mixture of alcohol and water.

And given that apparently he only needs a fraction of a percent to have control, the freezing point wouldn't be lowered that much anyway.

Look, its really very simple;

Tepoz poits some Alcohol into the sky above the 'victim', using his control over the substance he causes it to expand quickly causing a drop in pressure in that localized area, the naturally occurring water vapor held in suspension in the air freezes and drops to the earth as snow.

Hell, that was easier than trying to figure out how Storm/Ororo of the X-Men might do it...
