mirage off winter snow

Seems to me that sometimes mirage off snow on bright days can be worst than summer mirage.
Anyone else notice this, or am I just slowly freezing to death when I am out there and start seeing things.

Re: mirage off winter snow

Snow and other white objects reflect light and heat. On a sunny day this may happen. Its not your imagination. Use it to your advantage for detecting wind direction and speed for greater shooting ability.
